In 2001, Eileen O'Conner was living in Wishaw, UK, a tiny quiet village of less than 200 residents and found her life to be growing more difficult each passing day. At the age of 38, she developed a painful rash over her entire body and a concerning lump in her breast. 
    The lump was removed and she was given a diagnosis of breast cancer.  Following this was six months of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, reconstructive surgery and the usual mammograms, ultrasound scans, bone scans and MRI scans. Her doctor recommended that she take tamoxifen for five years, a common cancer drug for women.
    While in hospital,  Eileen notice many familiar faces from her village, many with serious health problems like herself. This, combined with her own experience, led Eileen to analyze her environment in a search for the cause of her ailment.  
Five ladies developed breast cancer
One case of prostate cancer
One case of bladder cancer
One case of lung cancer
Three cases of pre-cancer cervical cells
One motor neuron disease, age 51, who also had a massive spinal tumor
Numerous benign lumps in residents
Cases of electrosensitivity
Three cases of severe skin rashes
Many residents with sleep problems, headaches, dizziness, and low immune system problems
Many residents with low white blood cell counts
     After close examination, the common denominator they all shared was a very close proximity to the village's central mobile phone mast, owned by T-Mobile. The mast was installed in 1994. Eileen had been living within 100 meters of the mast for seven years before she exhibited her illness.  The majority of the rest of the residents lived with 500 meters of the mast.
   In 2003,  Eileen co-founded an action group called S.C.R.A.M. (Seriously Concerned Residents Against Masts) to campaign for the safe and responsible use of EM-producing technology. Her crusade brought the town's attention to the mast, and one night the mast disappeared. When T-Mobile went to put it back up, the townspeople revolted and staged a camp-in, guarding the site from technicians.  She went on TV shows and promised that if she was elected to government, there would be far fewer cell phone masts. 
    This heroic woman has become famous all over England and today she is a spokesperson for EM Radiation Research Trust. Her work has created worldwide public awareness of EMF radiation and its bio-effects.   She continues to bring leaders in health industries together for conferences that are heard around the world.
