A mother in Broomfield is leading the charge to stop a cellphone tower from being built at a church near the intersection of Sheridan and East Midway boulevards.
Stacy Warden, who lives in the neighboring Willow Park subdivision, worries the tower’s frequencies will negatively interact with her 7-year-old son Noah’s lifesaving medical equipment. Noah has cerebral palsy with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and a sensory processing disorder that makes him sensitive to stimulants such as electromagnetic frequencies. Noah is unable to walk, talk, crawl or eat on his own, but has cognitive function, and is aware of his surroundings, according to Warden.
“I’m really scared about the impact that it’s going to have on Noah,” Warden said.
In addition to her fears over the tower’s frequency and its effects, Warden says noise that the tower could produce can cause a harmonic distortion that would make Noah sick.
