ZADROGA BILL UPDATE
(click here to go to our Health Care Page)

ALERT!!!
OCTOBER 12th, 2014 IS THE LAST DAY
TO REGISTER A CLAIM
Anyone diagnosed with a WTC Cancer must register
with the Zadroga 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund
by 10/12/14.
Call Barasch & McGarry to learn your rights:
1-877-WTC-0911

[The Zadroga Fund Closes in 2016]
Dominique Penson, from the Barasch McGarry,
Salzman and Penson Law Firm spoke to us about the VCF. He was very informative.
He told us that initially the VCF was funded with
20 Billion Dollars, but only 6 billion was paid out.
The difference was returned to Congress
and the Fund closed in 2003. Originally,
Cancer was not covered but eventually that all changed.
Barasch McGarry, along with Kreindler & Kreindler, fought hard to get many cancers recognized.
They lobbied Congress to re-open the VCF.
Now 67 types of cancer are covered, with the latest ones being: Pancreatic, Cervix, Testicular and Brain.
For a list of the Cancers covered go to:
www.wtc-illness.com
If you or anyone you know has been diagnosed
with the Cancers covered please call them at:
1-877-WTC-0911 or 1-800-331-2782
