Trooper who died from 9/11 cancer asks fellow recovery workers to get screened

New York State Trooper Michael Anson died of World Trade Center-related cancer on January 2, 2018. Knowing that he was dying, Mike offered his fellow recovery workers from the site a message — “Don’t be afraid to go get some help,” reports John Gray of News 10.

Trooper Anson thought he was healthy for 15 years. When he was diagnosed with cancer, it was too late.

Anyone who spent time at the site after the terrorist attacks can receive a free health screening. Early diagnosis saves lives. To book a health screening, click here.
