152 Students and Staff at North Carolina University Diagnosed with ‘Cancers, Tumors and Disease’

152 students, staff, and alumni at North Carolina University have reportedly been diagnosed with cancers and a “host of tumors and disease.”

Cases of lymphoma, thyroid, and breast cancers have been reported among patients who spent time at a class building at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.

The building, Poe Hall, closed in November 2023.

Poe Hall was shut down amid reports of exposure to concerning levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), toxic chemicals linked to cancer.

A month before it was closed, an investigation found that PCB levels in five rooms were over 38 times the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) building limit.

The university now faces lawsuits from some of the 152 patients who report falling sick with diseases believed to be linked to the toxins.

These include Sarah Glad, a 35-year-old mother-of-one.

Glad says she dreamed of using her degrees from NC State to run for office.

However, her dreams were cut short when she died from stage four breast cancer.

Her family claims he death is linked to attending classes in Poe Hall.

A months-long investigation by the local news station WRAL exposed the dozens of cancer cases and their links to the university building.

Glad attended NC State from 2007 to 2013, earning a bachelor’s and master’s degree.

Her husband, Robbie Glad, told WRAL that his wife spent much of her master’s program in Poe Hall.

Years later, Glad and a former classmate were both diagnosed with breast cancer within months of each other.

Glad was just 33 years old when she was diagnosed.

She was able to fulfill one dream and become a mother in August 2022, even as cancer ravaged her body.

However, in January 2024, she died from the disease at just 35 years old.

Now, her husband Robbie Glad is focused on raising awareness.

“I don’t care about money,” he said.

“I don’t care about compensation.

“I do care about being able to help other people.”

Dozens of former students and staff have now come forward to reveal they have also been diagnosed with cancer, the investigation found.

According to Fox News, NC State has created a webpage directing users to updates about its investigation into contaminants since shutting down Poe Hall.

The webpage says the school is continuing to analyze testing results.

“The university remains committed to doing the right things to ensure this is a safe place to work, learn, and live,” reads a statement from Chancellor Randy Woodson on the page.

The webpage notes that the school initially received information from the Occupational Safety and Health Division of the North Carolina Department of Labor (NC DOL) saying an NC State employee had submitted a “complaint concerning alleged health and/or safety hazards related to Poe Hall” in August 2023.

Health officials began sampling in the building in October.

The initial phase of NC State’s Indoor Environmental Investigation Report sharing sample test results is available on NC State’s website.

“Poe Hall is a 7-story academic building constructed in approximately 1971 when PCBs were widely used in building materials, such as paint, caulk, and some mastics, across the United States,” the report notes.

“PCBs are a family of related artificial compounds, manufactured for use in a multitude of industrial and commercial products prior to 1979 when they were banned in the United States.”
