On September 5, Jon Stewart was joined on the TODAY Show by Barasch & McGarry’s Director of Outreach, Ret. FDNY Deputy Chief Richard Alles and well-known 9/11 advocate John Feal. They discussed the importance of registering with the World Trade Center Health Program and warned about the soon-to-expire Victim Compensation Fund (VCF).
They also appeared on Fox, NBC News, ABC News, MSNBC, and Telemundo. After a physically and emotionally draining but rewarding day, the work these three men did in shining a light on the 9/11 national health crisis is making a difference. We hope you watch the interview and help us spread awareness about the VCF deadline which must be extended.
