The Journal of the American Medical Association published the World Trade Center (WTC) Health Registry’s first cancer study. It is based on an analysis of verified cancer diagnoses among 55,778 WTC Health Registry enrollees who resided in New York State at the time of their enrollment.
The study did not find increases in cancer rates in people directly exposed to the WTC disaster overall, but did find small increases in rates of three types of cancer—prostate cancer, thyroid cancer and multiple myeloma—among rescue and recovery workers in the late period (2007-2008) compared to non-exposed New York State residents.Posted on August 14, 2015

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).
