Archive: Toxic Philippines: Rose Ann Calma, 8

Roseanne is the youngest of 5. Her mother, Susan, is a fulltime housewife and her father, Herminio is a construction worker who is usually away on out of town jobs during the week. Roseanne was conceived at the former US Airbase motorpool, Clark Airbase Communiations Command (CABCOM) where the family stayed for two years. Roseanne eats a soft diet of oatmeal since she cannot digest solid foods. She cannot walk or talk so she requires constant care and attention from feeding and bathing and is usually in her mother's arms. Her affliction has not been medically diagnosed because of her family's lack of financial resources although she is among the children supported by non profit organizations who cater to the needs of individuals who they believe to be affected by the high levels of toxicity inside CABCOM.
