New York, NY (WIBX) – The names of thousands of NYPD First Responders to the 9-11 attacks, have been added to a new cancer study.  The move was made by Mayor Michael Bloomberg who recently announced that he sent the names of over 39,000 officers, including civilian NYPD members, to the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

Researchers at the school are working on a study regarding cancers that may potentially be linked to people who worked at the World Trade Center site following the 2001 attacks. Police union officials are hoping to have cancer added to the list of eligible illnesses covered by the 9-11 Zadroga Act.
