Zadroga Act Cancer Decision Expected This Week

The federal official tasked with determining what ailments should be covered by the federal Zadroga Act is expected to decide by Saturday if certain cancers will be eligible for compensation. The decision is being eagerly awaited by thousands of first responders who believe they developed cancer due to exposure to the toxic dust that coated Ground Zero and much of Lower Manhattan in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
