New York State Volunteer Firefighters Get Out in Front to Beat Back Cancer

Thanks in large part to the research studies that verified health problems caused by 9/11 exposures, the World Trade Center Health Program is able to provide first responders and survivors with appropriate monitoring and treatment programs.

Volunteer firefighters would also benefit from treatment and prevention programs targeted at the health problems caused by the exposures they face while protecting their communities. Unfortunately, there has never been a research study focused on U.S. volunteer firefighters and their risks of developing or dying from cancer.

In an effort to obtain that information, the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York (FASNY) and Dr. Jacqueline Moline of Northwell Health (who was one of the founders of the WTC health programs and testified in Congress in support of the Zadroga Act) have launched the first study of its kind to determine how many volunteer firefighters in New York State have developed and died from cancer. Each volunteer or combination department’s participation is critical to the success of the study. The more departments that participate, the more successful and accurate the study results will be. Please encourage your department to participate. As I have learned in my struggle for health care for 9/11 workers, the more information we have, the stronger we can work for change – and get results that will improve everyone’s health.

Dear Friends, supporters and Fellow Responders,

As many of you know, the October 3rd deadline to register for the Victims Compensation Fund (VCF) has passed. Hopefully all of you who registered are eligible to receive compensation. With the Oct 3rd deadline passed, the FealGood Foundation has made a significant change as we are headed into year three of the Zadroga Bill (HR 847).
