I have been in contact with Anthony Flamia/retired NYPD.Anthony is on the STAC Committee (Scientific Technical Advisory Committee) NIOSH/WTC Health Program. He is collecting data related to secondary/cross-contamination from not being deconned before walking back into our houses, the toxic dust on our skin, hair, boots, ect. There is a chance that our spouses and children who were in the household when we returned from working at the Trade Center site were contaminated. Anthony Flamia was successful in receiving official recognition for the significant medical illnesses for his wife and child (who was in Utero at the time).He is collecting data related to these concerns to be able to show links to the responders families affected by the toxins.
If anyone was working down at the Trade Center site for the days following the attack and have had a spouse or child who was in the home when he returned after working on the pile,who has/had an illness or cancer, please contact Brother Barbella 914-755-9639.
