For son whose mom was post-9/11 casualty, victims fund paid tuition

Diane DiGiacomo, a special agent with the ASPCA, spent days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks rescuing pets stranded in apartments in the frozen zone. From her work there, she contracted site-related cancer and died in 2015. A single mother, she left her son, Stephan, 21.

Stephan graduated from Brooklyn College and studying to become a physical therapist with help from the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. Without the fund, he would not have been able to do this, reports Bob Hennelly for the Chief-Leader.
