What Are “Covered” 9/11-Related Illnesses?
If you were a worker, resident, first responder or student who was present in the 9/11 NYC “Exposure Zone” area of Lower Manhattan on September 11, 2001 or the months that followed, and have been diagnosed with cancer since then, there’s a chance your illness may be directly related to the toxic air from the terrorist attacks.
How do I know if my illness is 9/11-related?
The first step is to check the list of covered 9/11-related cancers and illnesses with the World Trade Center (WTC) Health Program. The 9/11 WTC Health Program and the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) cover more than 70 types of cancer, in addition to other diseases and medical conditions that 9/11 survivors have been diagnosed with for the past 19 years. And the number of survivors who are diagnosed with 9/11-related illnesses continues to increase every day.
Did you know that exposure to the toxic air from the terrorist attacks of almost 20 years ago can affect you today and in the future? Cancers that include lung cancer, breast cancer (in women and men), prostate cancer, colon cancer, leukemia and skin cancer are just a few of the types that sadly continue to be diagnosed, even today in 2020.
