The Day That Changed My Life - James Zadroga Act 9/11

It was ten years ago when we all shared in the horror of 9/11. We all united and mourned the loss of lives and celebrated the first responders as they rushed to the scene to offer assistance - many of the responders perished. There were many who rushed in to help shortly after the towers fell and remained on the site for weeks on end assisting in the recovery and search efforts.

According to the latest reports, cancer causing toxins have been found on the uniform worn by a cop who survived being buried in World Trade Center debris on 9/11. Officer Alonzo Harris whose uniform was tested and found to have the toxins said that it was a reality check for all of us.

Sixty-five cops have died from 9/11-related cancers and 297 more have been diagnosed, according to PBA officials.

The Day That Changed My Life - The Journey of a Medical School Professor

In my research to find a journey that we can share with you, I found this incredible story in USA Today which I found to be really interesting as it comes from a health care professional. David Oliver is a professor at the University of Missouri Medical School where he teaches on aging. The diagnosis of nasopharyngeal cancer which was at stage IV began in the upper part of the throat behind the nose. However, the cancer took its course and spread throughout the lymph nodes and his bones.

Dr. David Oliver candidly shares his journey. Be sure to pass it on as someone you know may know someone who needs to see this and while you are at it - say a little prayer for the Oliver family ;-)
