9/11 Multiple Myeloma
Multiple myeloma is one of the most common cancers among 9/11 responders and survivors. Turley Hansen has represented many claimants with Multiple myeloma since cancer was added to the list of illnesses covered under the Zadroga Act.
Multiple myeloma is a type of blood cancer formed by malignant plasma cells that develop in bone marrow. As a result, this cancer can result in broken bones (fractures) from only minor stress or injury. It can also result in pain in any bone, but is most often in the back, the hips, and skull. It can also result in low red and white cell blood counts which can produce fatigue and infections.
