Amesbury woman dies from EEE
Charlene Manseau, 63, of Amesbury died of eastern equine encephalitis Saturday and her family wants other cancer survivors to take extra precautions against the mosquito-borne illness. Manseau is the second fatal case of EEE in Massachusetts this year. State health officials reported earlier this month that a Westborough man in his 70s had died from the disease. Becky Manseau Barnett said her mother’s cancer treatments may have weakened her immune system, making her more susceptible to the virus.
