Who are the victims of these cancers? 

First and second responders as well as other workers and survivors of the attacks. To date, more than 4000 first responders, rescuers and other survivors of the September 11, 2001 attacks have already died from disease, primarily cancer. Skin cancer, prostate cancer and non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas are among the most common cancers listed on the CDC’s World Trade Center Health Program.

The CDC is adding more ailments to the list as time goes by and they make themselves known.

Challenging the Rhetoric asks that you PLEASE consider making a financial contribution to The Fealgood Foundation to help the people who continue to be victimized by what happened that ugly morning in September.
