Longtime September 11th survivors believe that more people will die from illnesses related to the event than the terrorist attack itself. Each year during the annual naming ceremony of victims, survivors name those who passed the current year. Each year, the list gets longer and longer. This year, the ceremony announced 177 new names. The total victims of those who died from 9/11 related diseases are now over 2,000 people.

About Mesothelioma

911 Mesothelioma VictimsThere are different forms of mesothelioma. The most common form of mesothelioma is pleural mesothelioma. This cancer develops in the lining of the lungs. Also, it accounts for around 75% of all mesothelioma cases. Symptoms of pleural mesothelioma often affect breathing and the thoracic cavity(chest), and they can often be taken for problems related to other diseases, such as pneumonia, flu, or even lung cancer.

Mesothelioma & 9/11 Victims

Many illnesses like mesothelioma have a long latency period. Therefore, it can take years for cancer to be developed. According to the World Trade Center Health Registry, the toxic cloud created by the collapse of the twin towers exposed an estimated 410,000 people to 400 tons of pulverized concrete, glass and asbestos, which causes mesothelioma, as well as poisonous gases and other dangerous substances.
Launched in 2011, the World Trade Center Health Program treats those living with any post-9/11 health problems. To date, the agency has enrolled close to 90,000 people. Participants include emergency responders, recovery and cleanup workers, volunteers, and even those living or working around the area.
Almost 10,000 registered with the program have at least one 9/11-related cancers. The top 10 cancers are non-melanoma of the skin, prostate, melanoma of the skin, thyroid, breast, lymphoma, lung, kidney, leukemia and colon cancers. This also includes mesothelioma. Over 1,000 people died from cancer.  The average age of a first-responder in 2001 was 37. Today, the average age of that group is 55. This age is the most common for a doctor to diagnose cancer.
