More than a decade later, the Ground Zero Health Fund is now open for those determined to have cancer caused by 9/11 debris.
Over 50 different types of cancer will be covered, it's just a question of how much money there is in the fund to begin with.
Check out the news report (above) for all the details.
All we can say is that it's about time something like this has happened, and it's awful how long we've waited.
We can only hope that this will continue the healing processes after such a horrifying day — something we might never completely finish.
Our hearts have, and will always, go out to those affected by the tragedy of 9/11.
