Tuesday: 9/11 Responders, Elected Officials to Read Names of Those Who Died From 9/11 Illnesses

January 5th is Fourth Anniversary of Death of NYPD Det. James Zadroga

*Responders to Demand Passage of 9/11 Health Bill*

New York , NY – On Tuesday, 9/11 first responders and elected officials will gather near Ground Zero to read the names of more than one hundred 9/11 responders and others who have died of illnesses caused by the attacks. Tuesday is the fourth anniversary of the death of NYPD Detective James Zadroga, the first 9/11 responder whose death was officially linked to his work at Ground Zero.

On Christmas Day, FDNY Hero and 9/11 responder Jim Ryan passed away of cancer caused by the 9/11 attacks, making him the latest victim of a health crisis that has been ignored by Washington for far too long. The 9/11 responders and others will demand passage of the federal James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, which will provide long-overdue help to those who are suffering with illnesses caused by the attacks.
