Eleven years after the September 11 terrorist attacks, first responders who were at Ground Zero and got cancer, will get help.
Government officials said yesterday 58 types of cancer will now be covered by a 9/11 compensation fund.
Firefighter Kenny Specht, who was treated for thyroid cancer is encouraged by the news, but he says, "Let’s not forget those who passed away. What happened [yesterday] happened much too late for them."
