Neuropathy should be added to the Act so that those who responded so heroically on 9/11 will not have to suffer by being excluded.

Almost 15 years after the worst terror attack on American soil, Surviving Mesothelioma says the heroic firefighters and first responders along with their families continue to fight an uphill battle. According to a newly-published article on the site, the toxic debris, human remains and piles of rubble have long since disappeared, but their fight continues to this day in the form of delays and bureaucracy.

Thankfully, Mesothelioma and many other cancers are now covered by the recently reauthorized Zadroga Act, but now 73,000 people across the country who are enrolled in the World Trade Center Health Program are being stonewalled in their fight to have neuropathy added to the Zadroga Act.
In a new article entitled Standing with 9/11 Firefighters and First Responders, Surviving Mesothelioma says that neuropathy should be added to the Act so that those who responded so heroically on 9/11 will not have to suffer by being excluded. Surviving Mesothelioma is proud to stand with our 9/11 firefighters and first responders so they are not fighting this battle alone.
Via coverage of the issue along with providing advocacy resources, the site is committed to bringing the issue to firefighters, first responders and the American public in order to win the battle to have neuropathy added to the Zadroga Act.
Until now, the issue has only received minuscule mention primarily within NYC media, but that has to change in order to overcome the bureaucracy standing in the way of coverage. Surviving Mesothelioma is asking Americans of all backgrounds along with the 9/11 community to share a link to this article and post on websites and within social media so that 9/11 firefighters and first responders are no longer fighting alone.
According to Surviving Mesothelioma, only with an outcry from millions will the obstacles standing in the way of approval be removed.
