Fourteen years ago today, the United States was attacked on our soil by radical Islamic terrorists resulting in the deaths of almost 3000 innocent Americans. We will never forget the victims of this monstous crime and their families.
Since that tragic day, many first responders and others who bravely answered the call of duty have either died or have become seriously ill as a result of exposure to the toxins at Ground Zero.
Now, 14 years after the attack, first responders live in all 50 states making their health care a national issue. Many have 9/11 related cancers which require extraordinary and expensive medical care. Today, these heroes are about to lose the federal health care benefits they continue to need both now and in the future. See this great article by AP reporter David Caruso explaining the problem.
Many of us are now fighting to have Congress Extend the James Zadroga Act of 2010 which provides these benefits. While we all remember 9/11 and mourn the loss of loved ones in our own way, we at Turley, Hansen & Rosasco ask that, no matter where you live, that you “click on this link to ask your Congressman to support future health benefits for the hero first responders of 9/11. It will only take a minute, but it may save a 9/11 hero’s life.
Thank you and God Bless the United States of America.
