Financial assistance for healthcare may be available to those who responded to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 , or those who lived and/or worked in Lower Manhattan during or after the collapse of the Twin Towers. Many people may be entitled to assistance with their medical costs and compensation through the 9-11 WTC Healthcare Fund and Victims' Compensation Fund . Some diagnosed with a disease (possibly prostate cancer) several years after 9-11 may have relocated from the city, or served as a visiting first responder.
