September 11 Remembrance Day
On Sept. 11, 2001, thousands of innocent lives were taken far too soon. Now, survivors of the tragedy are developing lung diseases as a result of the millions of microscopic asbestos fibers and other toxins released in the wake of the attack on the World Trade Center. This Sept. 11, 21 years later, we remember those taken from us and raise awareness about asbestos-related diseases, including mesothelioma, to better help those affected at ground zero.
