February is National Cancer Prevention Month. Cancer is prevalent among survivors and responders who were exposed to toxins at one of the three sites on 9/11, and in the days and months following. Currently, the World Trade Center Health Program
is providing medical and mental health treatment for over 41,000 individuals and over 100 cancers have been classified as certified conditions.
If you are already enrolled in the World Trade Center Health Program it is important to schedule your annual monitoring exam every year. Before your exam, make sure to write down a list of symptoms you are experiencing, even those that you think might not be related to your 9/11 exposures.
Early intervention for the treatment of cancer is critical. If you are a survivor and lived, worked or went to school in Lower Manhattan, or if you worked in the recovery effort at the World Trade Center site, in Shanksville, PA or at the Pentagon, you may qualify for treatment through the World Trade Center Health Program.
