Our Zadroga Act lawyers know the pain and fear of hearing a cancer diagnosis. It is our goal to minimize your stress concerning the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) process, so that you can focus the needed time and energy on yourself.

Leukemia Conditions

Leukemia begins in cells in the bone marrow. Over time, Leukemia cancer cells suppress the development of normal cells. There are different types of leukemia. The rate at which this cancer develops and how the cells replace the normal blood and marrow cells differs with each type of leukemia. 

As a result, VCF cancer payouts differ between cases and conditions. The WTC Health Program provides benefits and coverage for the medical care and treatment for every eligible 9/11 victim, including for leukemia.

Types of Leukemia include:

  • Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)
  • Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
  • Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)
  • Hairy Cell Leukemia (HCL)
  • Large Granular Lymphocytic Leukemia (LGL)
