October 12, 2014 Deadline Approaching for 9/11 First Responders Suffering from Certain Cancers to Submit Their Registration to the VCF, Parker Waichman LLP Comments
Date:7/28/2014

Port Washington, NY (PRWEB) July 28, 2014

Parker Waichman LLP, a personal injury law firm that has spent many years fighting to ensure that the heroes of 9/11 are never forgotten, comments that the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund (VCF) has announced an important deadline. According to a VCF message dated July 3, 2014, individuals who were diagnosed with a covered cancer on or before October 12, 2012 must file a Registration Form no later than October 12, 2014. First responders and others who were allegedly injured by the toxic dust cloud that hovered over the Manhattan World Trade Center site and who were diagnosed with cancer after October 12, 2012, must file a Registration Form within two years of the date of diagnosis, the VCF announced.

Prostate cancer was added to the list of covered 9/11 cancers as of October 21, 2013, which means that people diagnosed with this cancer prior to October 21, 2013, must register by October 21, 2015; those diagnosed on or prior to February 18, 2014 with a so-called “rare cancer” must register by February 18, 2016; and those diagnosed with a recognized cancer after the relevant cut-off date have up to two years from the date of illness, but no later than October 3, 2016. It is the registration of those cancers that will end this October 12th that is of particular concern to the VCF.

Many individuals who helped in the rescue and recovery efforts following the 9/11 terrorist attacks developed serious illnesses because of exposure to toxic dust in the air, wrote The Lancet. Earlier this year, four cancers were included in the list of cancers covered by the Zadroga 9/11 law. In fact, legal documents dated January 8, 2014 indicate that a number of provisions were made to the Zadroga Act (Docket No. CDC-2014-0004; NIOSH-268). The definition of “rare cancers” covered under the Zadroga Act was revised to include two new cancers—malignant neoplasm of the cervix uteri (invasive cervical cancer) and malignant neoplasm of the testis (testicular cancer), according to the document. A prior policy was also recently reversed that considered cancers of the brain and pancreas ineligible, and so-called “childhood cancers” were revised to include any type of cancer diagnosed in a person who is younger than 20 years of age.
