A Moving Father’s Day Interview From Barasch & McGarry

We hope your Father’s Day is meaningful. You’ve no doubt heard a lot about Keith Young, the heroic firefighter who lost his battle to cancer on Saint Patrick’s Day. Keith was a celebrated firefighter in Ladder 156 in Midwood, Brooklyn. He was known as the “Firehouse Chef” and published “Cooking with the Firehouse Chef”. He triumphed in a chicken cacciatore cook-off on the Food Network’s “Throw down With Bobby Flay” and he won two championship titles on “Chopped”.

More importantly, he was a wonderful father to his three children, Kaley, Christian, and Keira, and he was the primary caretaker for his children after his beloved wife Beth passed away three years ago.

On this day in particular, we thought that you’d be interested in hearing this moving radio interview that I did with his two inspiring daughters who remember their loving father and what it’s like for them on their first Father’s Day without him.

As I said on Mother’s Day, it is so important to make every day count with your family and loved ones!

  • Deadline Extended to Register for Compensation

    There is still time to apply for significant compensation if you have been diagnosed with any of the 68 cancers that doctors at the WTC Health Program (WTCHP) have linked to the WTC toxic dust. The deadline to apply to the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is two years from the date that a cancer has been certified by the WTC Health Program — or any other governmental agency. The two-year period to register doesn’t start on the day of a cancer diagnosis. Rather, it starts only when a cancer survivor is made aware their cancer was linked to exposure to the WTC toxins.

    For those who died from their WTC-linked cancers, the two-year period for their family to register starts on the day of the death of the WTC victim.

    Register For Compensation

Please help spread the word about the strict two-year deadline to register a claim

Many people have tried to complete the VCF application on their own, only to learn that it requires answers to hundreds of questions and many documents to download. It would be our pleasure to help you complete the process in order to ensure that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to. Please call us for a free consultation.
