Cancer-stricken Huguenot man’s nightmare: 9/11 Victims Fund could run dry

Nathan Spencer worked at Barclays in Lower Manhattan on September 11, 2001. Days after the terrorist attack, he worked at a temporary site in New Jersey, but was back at his office at Broadway and Fulton Street within a month of the attacks.

He has been diagnosed with World Trade Center-related breast and skin cancer, both currently in remission. He also suffers from site-related gastroesophageal reflux disease  and sleep apnea and spends thousands of dollars on medications.

He received help from the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund and tries to help others to register for the fund as well.

If current needs continue in the future, the fund will run out of money by 2020, reports Stanley Kashiwagi in the Staten Island Advance.
