More than 2,500 Ground Zero rescuers and responders have come down with cancer, and a growing number are seeking compensation for their illnesses, The
Post has learned.
The grim toll has skyrocketed from the 1,140 cancer cases reported last year.
The tragic sum rises to 2,518 when firefighters and EMTs are added. The FDNY, which has its own WTC health program, said Friday it counts 863 members
with cancers certified for 9/11-related treatment.
Particularly appalling because we lied to these guys in the first place.
