A FDNY hero who led his fellow firefighters out of the World Trade Center North Tower just before it collapsed, saving countless lives, has lost his battle with 9/11 related bone marrow cancer at age 51. Unfortunately, like so many 9/11 first responders who have contracted cancer (including multiple myeloma and other blood cancers) related to their service at Ground Zero, this particular cancer was too strong to beat in the end.
