Posted Sep 13, 2013 by Turley, Hansen & Rosasco on First Responders
On the 12 year anniversary of September 11th, Turley, Hansen & Partners’ Zadroga Department Staff came out to the Bethpage Ballpark in Central Islip to show support for all 9/11 First Responders. This special Long Island Ducks baseball game was sponsored by the World Trade Center Health Program – Long Island Clinical Center of Excellence where many First Responders receive care for their 9/11 related illnesses. First Responder, Tom Lano was chosen to throw out the first pitch with his grandson by his side and both were beaming with smiles on the mound.
Turley, Hansen & Rosasco’ Paralegal Angela Luongo was excited to be able to attend the baseball game and to see so many people in a joyful atmosphere whereas most usually see as a somber day. “It was great to be able to show support for these men and women who have been suffering so much with 9/11 related illnesses. It was nice to see smiles on a day that many often feel sad,” said Luongo.
Representatives from the WTCHP Clinical Center of Excellence were on hand to answer questions as well as promote the importance for First Responders to join the World Trade Center Health Program for monitoring and treatment of their 9/11 related illnesses. “It’s wonderful to see people signing up for this free program. Not only will these First Responders receive free health care, it will greatly benefit them should they want to file a claim with the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund in the future,” says Paralegal Samantha Stone. She adds, “Since the WTCHP doctors specialize in 9/11 related illnesses, they really understand how exposure of these toxins is linked.”
