Its about time! After a long struggle, the federal government issued a final rule today covering almost 50 different cancers under the 9/11 Zadroga Act. The medical coverage for 9/11 cancer victims which comes with this ruling cannot be underestimated.
As any cancer patient knows, the medical bills associated with long term cancer treatment (even for those with medical insurance) can be financially crippling. This cancer ruling will be a Godsend for many 9/11 first responders and their families.
