19 Years After the September 11 Attacks, the Survivors Fight On
This Friday, September 11th, 2020 will be the 19th anniversary of one of the most tragic and horrifying days in American history – the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Besides the 2,977 innocent victims that died that day, in the last 19 years over 3000 survivors and responders have died of 9/11 related cancers and respiratory conditions due to the toxic dust and fumes that covered lower Manhattan.
Please remember all the victims and their families on 9/11. Thank you and Never Forget.
In October of 2001, attorney Troy Rosasco took on a case for a family that lost a loved one when the buildings came down. He represented the family free of charge. On August 18th, 2020, another client of Hansen & Rosasco who was a former NYPD 9/11 responder, died of Stage 4 colon cancer. He had been diagnosed less than six months before and was only 60 years old.
Unfortunately, the number of downtown workers, residents, students and responders who are being diagnosed with new cancers is increasing each day. In addition, our entire country is now dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. These dual assaults, cancer and coronavirus, on the 9/11 community as we approach the 19th anniversary of September 11th are taking a devastating toll. Since Covid-19 invaded the United States in January 2020, the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund has had 290 death claims submitted through August 2020.
9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Claims Still Gets Inundated With Claims Yearly
If you or a loved one are sick with any 9/11 related illness, Hansen & Rosasco wishes you the best of health on the somber memory of September 11th.
Keep the faith and God Bless.
