Flint resident Tim Monahan refuses a piggyback ride from his niece Chadie Adler, 9, before she goes to bed as he wouldn't be strong enough to lift her on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2016 in Flint. Chadie has lived with her uncles Tim and Bill Griffin, his partner, for five years since her mother died after more than one year battling Ewing's Sarcoma, a form of cancer. Tim Monahan was diagnosed with Legionella pneumonia in July 2014, one of 45 cases reported in Genesee County during a 10-month period from June 2014 to March 2015 -- including 27 cases in Flint -- that included seven deaths, according to a report from the state. Three other deaths from the disease, as part of 42 additional cases in Genesee County, took place between May 2015 to November 2015. "I'm not alone in this. There's a whole bunch of us that are like could we go somewhere if we could, would we do something different? I don't know. I like the city of Flint and I love the people that live here," he said. "There are so many great people that are standing up and working on making this a better city, there really are. We're excited in that, but at the same time, you can't drink the water."
