This article from NY Daily News details the passing of another NYPD officer due to  9/11 related health effects:

The sacrifice of a cancer-stricken city cop laid to rest Tuesday was held aloft by union leaders in the push to aid ill Ground Zero responders.

“He died from a rare cancer that literally ate his face,” Lynch said, flanked by other officers. “The young man that joined this police department withered away and died because he was willing to put his life on the line and respond on Sept. 11 – and not leave until our job was done.”

Lynch was supposed to be in Washington with other members of the New York delegation to press for passage of a bill that would help the families of injured Ground Zero heroes like Mahmoud.

Mahmoud died after contracting a rare cancer of the nasal passages that required disfiguring surgery to remove his nose.

“It is very difficult for us,” his brother, Hashem, said. “But David isn’t the only one. There are others like him and they should be looked up to.”

The following article from Newsday is from just after the court settlement:

Robert Ehmer of East Meadow had planned to use his share of the settlement for Ground Zero rescue and recovery workers to pay for treatment that his Medicare insurance wouldn’t cover, his sister Annette Ehmer said.

Ehmer, a 20-year New York City police officer, lost a three-year battle with kidney cancer Sunday, dying at the Hospice Inn in Melville. He was 47.

    1 Never heard of such an item, and doubt that it exists. The best way to avoid the draeded settled for less than original balance’ is on the front end-by negotiating with the creditor.2 Paying the collections will do you NO GOOD unless you get them to agree, in writing, to remove the item from your credit report once it is paid. Don’t agree to anything until you have that letter. They will always try to tell you that they can’t do that, at first. Don’t believe it. They can and will if negotiated properly.3 You can dispute the late payments. The FCRA says you can dispute items as many times as you want. If they don’t respond to the credit bureaus within 30 days, they must remove it. Send dispute letters to each of the bureaus that the trade line is reporting to. What you don’t have is revolving credit and you need it. Get a secured credit card and your score will immediately jump 30 points. I have a credit repair company with in-house Realtors and mortgage brokers and these techniques have worked for us many, many times.Good luck!
