Re: Deadline to register prostate cancer with the Victim Compensation Fund

Please be aware that there is a critical deadline for 9/11 first responders who have been diagnosed with PROSTATE CANCER: October 21, 2015.

Anyone who worked at Ground Zero, the Fresh Kills Landfill, the Morgue, or aboard any of the transport vehicles, is eligible for health care and compensation under the Zadroga Health and Compensation Act.

Men diagnosed with prostate cancer between 9/11/05 and 9/11/13, must register their claims with the Victim Compensation Fund before October 21, 2015.

The WTC Health Program has linked 62 cancers to the WTC toxic dust. There is a presumption that if you have been diagnosed with one of those cancers, it was due to your exposure. You should also know that cancers diagnosed after 9/11/13, including prostate cancer, must be registered within two years of the date of diagnosis.

Please help spread the word. Don’t let any sick EMTs, Paramedics and Fire Inspectors miss the deadline. If you have any questions, or need help with your claim, feel free to contact the law firm of Barasch & McGarry at (888) 351-9421. All consultations are free and confidential. Barasch & McGarry are the attorneys for Detective Zadroga’s family and they represent more 9/11 first responders than any other law firm.

In Solidarity,

Israel Miranda

Papal Visit

Pope Francis will visit the National September 11 Memorial & Museum on September 25, 2015 to pay his respects to the 2,983 victims of the September 11, 2001 and the February 26, 1993 terror attacks at the World Trade Center. 

A lottery will be held to offer members of the 9/11 Community an opportunity to be on the Memorial for the Pope's arrival and for a very limited number of seats at a Multireligious Meeting for Peace hosted by the New York Archdiocese within the 9/11 Memorial Museum. The lottery will be selected at random and closes on Wednesday, August 5, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. 

You may enter the lottery if you are a 9/11 Family Member, 9/11 Rescue and Recovery Worker, 9/11 Survivor, Lower Manhattan Resident or Business Owner, or Active-Duty First Responder at an agency that lost members in the 9/11 attacks. One entry per person is permitted. If selected, you will be allowed to bring one guest and must provide your guest's name when you are notified. Please note: Your name will be printed on your ticket(s), along with your stakeholder group and you will be asked to provide identification to verify your status. Anyone over the age of 18 must present a government issued photo ID. For security purposes, you may be required to submit additional information for a security check. 

Following the Pope's visit to the Memorial, he will lead the Multireligious Meeting for Peace inside the Museum, gathering with local representatives of the world religions to give a common witness to peace. The program will include an address by the Pope, prayers and meditations from various religious traditions.

If you would like to enter the lottery please go to the following link:
