The Nurses Are Our Heroes

As you may know, this month is National Nurses month. This year in particular it has taken on a whole new meaning. These underappreciated nurses who have been at the front lines of this pandemic are our heroes. We will never be able to repay them for risking their lives every day to protect us. Thousands of them have come from all over the country to attend to sick New Yorkers. What we can do and should do is show them our gratitude.

Please enjoy this video highlighting the Barasch McGarry Health Care Workers Lunch Program. We are grateful to have donated over 1,300 lunches to nurses at hospitals in the NYC area; all from local restaurants. And, we’ll continue doing it. Look at the expressions on the faces of the nurses when they realize that they don’t have to eat their lunch out of a vending machine!

We made this video in honor of every nurse who is putting their life on the line, now and always. It is remarkable and inspiring to see how, when confronted with a crisis, these nurses voluntarily dropped everything to help total strangers. God bless them all.

We continue to be inspired by our health care professionals and the selfless efforts they make every day. We’ve also donated more than 50,000 masks to every firehouse across New York City, police officers at 37 NYPD precincts, sanitation workers, correction officers, Port Authority officers, and other front line workers who are going to work every day and selflessly risking their own safety. I thank the countless active and retired responders who have helped us deliver the masks to those who need them.

Please help us spread the word by sharing this video.

Be safe!

  • 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.
