My husband was prior Marine military collecting disability from the VA. I am now attempting to connect his disability Cardio Amyloidosis death to his disability in the service. I have a Dr. who agrees with the cause being more likely than not connected. but cannot answer until directly asked?? per his insurance company. because it's been almost 3 yrs. since my husbands death. I have an appeal out there and need help please.

ok, I need an attorney to intervene here. Could the radiation have contributed to his heart failure and his Amyloid because he was given radiation to the Aortic node, lower groin and lower back. He was discharged due to medical adverse effects of the radiation treatments to which he was receiving compensation from the VA
