Four Additional Cancers To Be Added Under The 9/11 Zadroga Bill
February 21, 2014
The decision to amend the list of cancers under the World Trade Center Health Program makes it evident that there is a clear link from 9/11 toxin and debris exposure to over 60 types of cancer. With the addition of these four cancers, many first responders, volunteers and survivors will be able to get the free cancer care they deserve under the World Trade Center Health Program. It is expected that Special Master Sheila Birnbaum of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund will follow suit to allow these cancers to be covered for monetary compensation as she has done previously with all other cancers deemed 9/11 related by the World Trade Center Health Program and NIOSH.
