Says Recent Decision to Exclude Cancer from List of Diseases Covered Under Fund Is More Reason for Those to Attend

RONKONKOMA, NY — Troy Rosasco, Partner, Turley, Redmond, Rosasco & Rosasco, is available to speak about the appearance of Sheila Birnbaum, Special Master, 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF), who will host a town hall meeting about the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. Mr. Rosasco will be joined by one of his clients at the meeting.

Ms. Birnbaum will discuss the VCF, what it entails and who is eligible. She will also take questions from those in attendance. As Special Master, she heads the VCF program. She recently gained recognition when she helped work to mediate a settlement of $500 million for 92 families of victims of the September 11th attacks at the World Trade Center.

With the recent decision by Dr. John Howard of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health not to include cancer on the list of diseases for the Victim Compensation Fund, Mr. Rosasco urges those who believe they are eligible for the funds to attend the meeting and speak out against Dr. Howard’s decision. Dr. Howard, who oversees the fund program, said he did not find enough evidence to place cancer on a list of diseases covered by the fund.

For the past nine years, the attorneys at Turley, Redmond, Rosasco and Rosasco have been representing victims of 9/11. The firm is currently accepting Zadroga Act Victim Compensation Fund cases for clients who want them to fully prepare their claims by gathering all needed medical and financial information prior to the fund’s reopening this summer.

“Given the decision today by Dr. Howard that cancers will not be covered by the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, this upcoming town hall meeting in New Jersey is especially important for the 9/11 survivors who wish to be heard,” Mr. Rosasco said. “We urge the victims to request that Ms. Birnbaum not exclude cancers from the Victim Compensation Fund until after reports are released for the cancer studies conducted by Mount Sinai, the New York City Fire Department, the World Trade Center Health Registry, and the New York State Health Department.”

DATE: August 2, 2011
6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
