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!

By Hansen & Rosasco
