Up to 9,795 people were diagnosed with cancer linked to September 11, the federal World Trade Center Health Program recently confirmed before the 17th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

The program "provides monitoring and medical treatment for those who respond at the WTC and related sites in New York, Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and survivors who were in the disaster area of ​​New York City," according to their website. .

Crane told the Post: "We get these referrals 15 to 20 times a week."

The health program reported 3,204 cancers linked to 9/11 in 2015. At the end of the following year, the figure increased to 8,188. Now, the number of incidents is close to 10,000 with a figure of 9,795.

According to the Post, more than 1,700 people who responded and other people died as a result, including 420 specifically for cancer.

Former New York Police Sgt. Tom Wilson, who worked approximately 344 hours at the scene of the attacks, developed respiratory diseases that later became more serious.

In 2008, Wilson diagnosed tongue cancer after his years of sinusitis and gastrointestinal problems.

"I could probably go out with a disability, but working is my therapy, it's good for me," Wilson told the Post, who still works proudly in the profession.

God, do not let there be another 9/11, I want to be able to answer that & # 39;

The former receptionist of the National Coffee Association, Debbie Morales, said her health has been in a drastic decline since she got off the subway that day.

She told the Post that she suffered two attacks eight years later and was later diagnosed with advanced brain cancer.

The married woman said she probably will not be able to have children because of her health complications, which prevented her from freezing her eggs.

"I'm scared of everything since September 11 … it's never been like that before," he told the Post with tears in his eyes.

"I feel like that thing just took everything away."

According to NCBI, it was reported that only 60,000 and 70,000 lifeguards for the first time inhaled the toxic powder.

Dr. Jacqueline Moline, director of the Health Program at the Queens World Trade Center at Northwell Health, told CNN about the related diseases in June: "The first wave was acute: deaths and all acute injuries in the first few days.

"The second wave was the sequel and developed breast, asthma, anxiety and depression.

"The third wave is the diseases that take years to manifest … the transformation from an acute disease to a permanent one, that's where we really are now."
