American Hero: FDNY Firefighter Ray Pfeifer Dies from 9/11 Kidney Cancer

By Hansen & Rosasco

Ray Pfeifer, a retired NYC firefighter and tireless advocate for the Zadroga Act, died Sunday evening of 9/11 kidney cancer at the age of 59. God bless his family, friends and brothers in the FDNY.

Ray was a hero until the very end. I recently saw Ray at a 9/11 fundraiser on April 15, 2017. The place was packed 300 strong with Ray’s supporters and admirers!

9/11 Victim Compensation Fund: How to File a Claim Now?

By Hansen & Rosasco

most important thing to do if you were diagnosed with a 9/11 covered condition today would be to “register” your claim with the Victim Compensation Fund. “Registration” is different from “filing” a 9/11 VCF claim. You can register your 9/11 claim without actually filing your claim. This will protect you from missing important filing deadlines.
