Proposal to Cover Prostate Cancer under Zadroga Act and WTC 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund

Posted in Health Info, Zadroga 9/11 Compensation Fund Claims

Good News!  Dr. John Howard, Administrator of the World Trade Center Health Program, proposed a new federal rule on 7/2/13 which would add Prostate Cancer to the list of illnesses covered by the James Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act and the WTC Health Program.    Click here to see how you can support this proposed important rule.

If this rule becomes final, we fully expect that 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Special Master Sheila Birnbaum will also add Prostate Cancer to the list of  eligible cancers for monetary awards under the VCF.  

Any 9/11 first responder or survivor who is suffering from prostate cancer (even if currently in remission) or family member of a deceased prostate cancer victim should contact a Zadroga Act attorney today to find out how to register by the deadline of October 3, 2013.
