John Feal and the FealGood Foundation: ENSURING CANCER CARE FOR 9/11 FIRST RESPONDERS
By 2010, a new form of devastation appeared out of the shadows: a significant number of advanced and aggressive cancer cases suddenly grew within the many surviving rescuers and ground zero exposed. These victims were formerly cleared of any illnesses at first testing are now showing surprising numbers of cases of over 68 cancer types in the blood, brain, lung, liver, thyroid and skin...

A Foreword from our Co-Founder
Welcome to the FIRST RESPONDERS CANCER RESOURCE. Formerly the 9/11 CancerScan program, FTCR is a joint alliance between medical and clinical professionals and advocacy groups dedicated to bringing support to all first responders who may be affected by the many cancer risks and injuries "on the job".  Environmental toxins and carcinogens often arise from chemicals propelled at high temperatures where a rescuer exposed to this can have lasting effects on his or her health. Our resource effort is geared to providing educational awareness and a growing list of patient advocacy support including research for innovations and professionals, grants, fundraising help and other ways that may support existing patients or the prevention and early detection to help our first responders.

Let us know how we can help our heroes stay safe!

Innovative New Cancer Detection from A "SIMPLE BLOOD TEST"
Recently, a new form of blood test called IvyGene can confirm the presence of cancer as early as stage 1 by providing measurable data in the form of a score to make it easier to understand- while confirming the presence of cancer early, when it can be more easily managed and treated. "...our mission is to make cancer testing available and affordable for everyone. We work closely with thousands of physicians nationwide to provide early cancer confirmation and save lives sooner. Unlike many genetic tests that use DNA to determine the propensity or possibility of developing cancer over time, the IvyGene test confirms actual disease presence at the time of testing."

SPECIAL VIDEO: Cancer Detection for Firefighters using Genetic/Blood Testing
The Beford Fire Dept is among the growing list of fire departments across the U.S. that are now pursuing advanced cancer detection protocols due to the job-related risk and elevated exposure to hazardous materials linked to cancers. (see video)


Richard Marrone & the 9/11 Cancer Resource Group
Richard Marrone is a career veteran with the NY Fire Department, an active FDNY Paramedic trainer and a first responder at 9/11-- his interest and personal insight to the concerns of ALL responders led to deeper exchange with the cancer imaging directors and soon became the establishment of a major public health outreach project and support network called the 911CancerScan program.

Types of Cancers from WTC Disaster - an Overview Dr. Jesse A. Stoff
For people who have been exposed to the fallout (as lethal as radioactive fallout) and the dust from the 911 catastrophe, we're seeing not just these kinds of cancers but many other cases that are considered to be rare in prior groups. These rare cancers are delineated on the CDC website and are occurring, undoubtedly, because of the mixture of toxins that people have been exposed to. The volume of these toxins are absorbed into their bodies since 9/11 (while working with the clean-up efforts) and can't get rid of them. (See Full Article)
 

GROWING CASES OF MALE BREAST CANCER
Meet Ret. Chief Larry Overcast- Retired Firefighter turned Breast Cancer Missionary

From an Interview with Awareness for a Cure reporter in 9/19/2018

They say you're cancer-free but in the back of your mind, there's always a chance of the 'boogerman' will jump up and get'ya.

I was a Shelbyville firefighter back in 1973, and I worked there until '76. then I came back in '86 and officially retired 2011; the whole time, we didn't have any breathing (protection) apparatus. I worked there of a total, probably 33 years as a firefighter; a driver; a captain, but this captain still had to fight fires. We call it fire hall number one- as one of three stations in the city of Shelbyville, Tennessee. When I came back in '86 they started carrying respiratory protection on their trucks, but we didn't use em, and then with all the new plastics and the new synthetic materials and stuff coming out; I think I was one of the first ones that started using it because I didn't want all that stuff in my lungs. Out of it, they say I've got a touch of COPD; I don't know if that came from the fire department because I never smoked.

"I HAVE BREAST CANCER!"
Around September 2016. I was out weed eating and mowing the grass. I wiped off sticks and sweat from my chest and that's when I felt something. I tried to wipe it off, and I looked down, and it was a little knot, about the size of the end of your little finger.

The MALE BREAST CANCER COALITION, NY Cancer Resource Alliance and Bard Cancer Diagnostics (NYC) united to create the first comprehensive Male Breast Cancer Screening & Monitoring program dedicated to providing men with the full-service facility to screen, monitor and track any and all breast cancers in men. This also includes a complete awareness program about early detection, recurrence prevention and both pre-and-post treatment solutions.

 

THE 9/11 CANCERSCAN PROGRAM -
provides diagnostic options targeting the most common health issues recorded from 9/11 exposure. Use of advanced sonogram technology out-performs MRI’s, X-Rays and CT-Scans and is a safe, non-invasive and radiation-free option to accurately gather real-time images of the inside of the body. It is used to find anomalies and help diagnose any injuries, tumors, cysts and infection while allowing the diagnostician the ability to zoom and ‘travel’ deep into the body for maximum exploration.

SCAN 1: For all new patients, it is recommended to start with a diagnostic imaging exam of the patient’s LUNGS, BLADDER, THYROID and LIVER to seek out any significant cysts and tumors. These are the more common organs that would show any telltale signs of any further issues in the body.

PROSTATE: The CDC has recorded Prostate Cancer as the second largest number of cancer cases in first responders. We offer a comprehensive prostate scan using advanced doppler technology to monitor and identify any cancerous issues that may pre-exist.

ADVANCED LUNG STUDY: Airborne toxins and carcinogens make their way throughout the body starting with the lungs. A more in-depth look at this area helps us identify any infections past or present from scarring or early stages of growths in the nearby airways. This can also be used as a preventative or early-detection procedure for possible future cases of Lung Cancer.

FULL SKIN DIAGNOSTICS: The CDC rated non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) as the most common tumor in 9/11 cases. Skin cancer rates are continuing to rise and the most deadly form (melanoma) may be ruled out by 3D Doppler histogram imaging and advanced optical diagnostics.


The World Trade Center Attacks are still going on for so many with the new wave of cancers. Visit our 9/11 HEALTHWATCH NEWSLETTER for new updates, articles, interviews and features affecting our community of responders. (MORE)

PREVENTION & DETECTION PROGRAM:
CANCER DIAGNOSTICS PROGRAM FOR FIRST RESPONDERS & SURVIVORS

Historical reports show significant cancer claims from emergency rescue units- especially FIREFIGHTERS. Where prior diagnoses may not identify dormant cancer strains, this program is attuned to search for and recognize markers from a thorough and comprehensive review with the use of advanced Histogram Analysis technology. Dr. Bard's program is also available for pinpointing a more accurate 'second view' of the behavior of pre-existing 9/11-related cancer cases (thyroid, kidney, prostate, lung, pancreatic, leukemia & multiple myeloma, etc.) and can recommend solutions that may confirm or invalidate prior reviews. Also, the BCD program is designed to providing a detailed analysis of many tumors, cysts or premalignant lesions that is complementary to most recognized biopsy reports without the invasive surgical procedure!

Another effective "weapon" in the battle against this epidemic is the Bard Cancer Diagnostic Program: From Advanced Cancer Scanning to the Non-Invasive "Digital Biopsy". Once the patient has been certified (and validated) by the WTC Health Program, individuals suffering from 9/11 related illnesses can receive VCF Compensation and reimbursements for their medical treatment. Patients now have their own choice of health professionals and the option to pursue recently available advanced medical care.

Dr. Robert Bard, expert Cancer diagnostician and the Northeast’s expert in 4D Doppler Imaging has developed the POST 9/11 CANCER DIAGNOSTICS PROGRAM. His NYC-based facilities (Bard Cancer Diagnostic Imaging) are equipped with only the most advanced state-of-the-art technologies that often out-performs higher-priced MRI’s, CT-Scan’s and X-Rays while promising to deliver more affordable and accurate reports in REAL-TIME from a process that's ready in MINUTES. BCD is prepared to provide any 9/11 first responder or survivor with advanced cancer screenings to search for impending cancers. Pre-cancerous symptoms that may arise as per the rising reported numbers of post-9/11 cancer cases are evaluated quickly, accurately and painlessly.

BARD CANCER DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING(NYC) has isolated and scanned countless cases of cancers using the most advanced diagnostic imaging technologies worldwide. We provide early detection and real-time "digital biopsies" of many tumor types using 4D Doppler innovations bringing accuracy and expediency to the comprehensive report- within MINUTES. For our patients, this is a priceless advantage that cuts down the wait time, decreases travel (to multiple diagnostic centers) and reduces the insurmountable level of stress and intolerable problems of today’s increasing medical bureaucracy. Our technology outperforms the advantages of MRI, X-ray and CT scans by 20-to-1. We have an uncompromising system that’s unique to the health care profession whereby our combined experience and technical advancements are called upon by many university hospitals and private practices today. My services were recently utilized during the terror attack in Nice by the truck driver who mowed down innocent civilians on the French Riviera where-x-ray and CT services were overwhelmed (I am a current member of the French Radiology Society-Societe Francaise de Radiologie since 1999)

9/11 NECK CANCER CASE
With the aid of 4D Doppler Technology, Dr. Bard can identify, detect and analyze many tumors from pre-malignant areas to advanced cancerous cases. The regular sonogram shows a malignant disorder (top) while the 4D scan (bottom) displays a mass filled with cancerous arteries and veins meaning this is highly aggressive requiring immediate attention.


9/11 MESOTHELIOMA CASE
Exposure to toxins may produce cancers in many organs. This patients chronic cough prompted a chest sonogram showing a pulmonary tumor that had produced malignant fluid partially collapsing the breathing volume but had not yet metastasized below the diaphragm. The liver, an early target of cancer seeding, was clearly seen to be untouched in the same sonogram study simply by moving the probe from the chest wall to the abdomen sparing our patient from extra testing and mental stress over the possible spread of disease.


9/11 CANCER SCARE-SAME PATIENT 6 MONTHS AFTER TREATMENT
Our mesothelioma patient (pictured above) had a minor injury and noticed a new lump under the small bruise. A 5 minute scan showed the discoloration was caused by minor blood vessel damage due to the underlying BENIGN fatty tumor.  Cysts and other non-malignant disorders can be distinguished from metastatic lymph nodes (glands) providing “real-time” relief of anxiety of cancer recurrence.


  MPR-TV reports on Advanced Cancer Doppler Imaging. Meet Dr. Robert L. Bard (award-winning cancer diagnostician and expert imaging specialist). Get the facts about the many new 9/11 Cancer Cases 18 years since the terror attacks- and how we are waging a new war with advanced technology like the use of 3D/4D Doppler Histogram Scans.

To compare the performance of the 4D ULTRASOUND SONOGRAM over MRI, XRAY and CT SCAN, this  comprehensive chart identifies the clear advantages of physician directed imaging and targeted diagnosis as compared with the routine radiographic tests. Specifically, a patient puts his finger on the lump or points out the area of pain to the sonogram specialist who then focuses on the region of concern.  The investigating physician will demonstrate the problem on the scan to the patient and ensure that both are in agreement that the primary disorder is in the cross-hairs of the 3D scan.  As the 4D (real-time 3D) is proceeding the diagnostic possibilities are discussed and alternative diagnostic imaging are mentioned. Diagnostic sonography is the FIRST EXAM used worldwide because it is the least invasive for the best solution to a patient’s problem. Since the test is interactive and performed in real-time, for example, we have the patient with the ankle “sprain” move the foot and see  the injured tendon separate further as it is stretched voluntarily confirming the diagnosis of a complete tear. Fractures underlying ligament trauma are concurrently detected.  For many trauma cases this technology determines whether our patient needs an ice pack for pain or a scalpel to repair the tendon rupture.  Similarly, with cancer patients, aggression can be determined and graphically seen by the patient within minutes.  Extent of disease can be staged quickly and treatment plans started immediately.  Patients, fearing the worst, are de-stressed somewhat by bad news delivered immediately with therapeutic options simultaneously provided.

If you may have been recently diagnosed or have realistic concerns about 9/11-related cancers, contact us immediately at 212.355.7017. We are available to discuss your options and work with your physician on the many ways that our advanced 4D Digital Diagnostic System for post 9/11 trauma or cancer cases can help you. We are ready to work with the current compensation benefits fund to get you the best noninvasive diagnostic testing and minimally invasive treatments available.
