I started my career in medicine in 1968 and enlisted in the US Air Force during the Vietnam era as a radiologist. There I learned the discipline of immediate response to the call of duty, whether it be for the protection of our country or rescuing human life. The 9/11 tragedy brought out that same spirit when our first responders called for help.
I extended my practice to the many police personnel, firefighters, contractors and volunteers who were exposed to toxins or were injured in ground zero during and after that fateful attack, and one by one, cases of knee and hand injuries from rescuers who struggled with the many flights of stairs of the towers or dug out hot and heavy rubble to respond to cries for help. I also handled other TRAUMA cases like eye injuries where my technology was the most effective way to quickly and accurately identify a dislocated lens, retinal detachment and foreign matter (glass or splinter) that made its way behind the swollen eye lid or into the blood stream. My group tackled each injury with the best of care, compassion and the highest commitment to recovery using minimally invasive sonogram diagnostics.
A decade or so later, news broke of unique and advanced cases of CANCER arising in droves. The same individuals exposed to the toxic fumes and plumes of hazardous particles of the danger zone contracted aggressive cases of CANCER and were in immediate demand for medical care and support. My practice was no stranger to this dilemma as I began meeting and diagnosing cancer tumors in the lung, liver, kidney, brain, skin and eye probably related to 9/11 exposure.
I personally met James Zadroga in 1992 at a public event. The name did not impact me until way past his untimely demise on 2006. Having connected with John Feal of the FealGood Foundation, we put all the pieces together as far as the extensive yet never-ending work that still has yet to be done to bring much needed support, compensation and political awareness to help the many survivors and affected rescuers of the 9/11 disaster. The Zadroga Compensation Act was established (2011) by a group of D.C. advocates who drove legislation to ensure that those exposed to the 9/11 disaster continue to receive monitoring and treatment services for 9/11-related health problems through at least until 2090.
My practice, BARD CANCER DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING (NYC) has isolated and scanned countless cases of cancers using the most advanced diagnostic imaging technologies worldwide. We provide early detection and real-time "digital biopsies" of many tumor types using 4D Doppler innovations bringing accuracy and expedience to the most comprehensive report- within MINUTES. For our patients, this is a priceless advantage that cuts down the wait time, decreases travel (to multiple diagnostic centers) and reduces the insurmountable level of stress and intolerable problems of today’s increasing medical bureaucracy. Our technology outperforms the advantages of MRI, X-ray and CT scans by 20-to-1. We have an uncompromising system that’s unique to the industry whereby our combined experience and technical advancements are called upon by many university hospitals and private practices today. My services were recently utilized during the terror attack in Nice by the truck driver who mowed down innocent civilians on the French Riviera where-x-ray and CT services were overwhelmed (I am a current member of the French Radiology Society-Societe Francaise de Radiologie and have been since 1999)
If you may have been recently diagnosed or have realistic concerns about 9/11-related cancers, contact us immediately at 212.355.7017. We are available to discuss your options and work with your physician on the many ways that our advanced 4D Digital Diagnostic System for post 9/11 trauma or cancer cases can help you. We are ready to work with the current compensation benefits fund to get you the best noninvasive diagnostic treatment available.
John Feal and the FealGood Foundation: ENSURING CANCER CARE FOR 9/11 FIRST RESPONDERS
Nesconset, NY (April 20, 2018) - Meet Long Island's own John Feal- an injured Ground Zero contractor turned national super-advocate and champion for the prevalence of the 9/11 VICTIMS COMPENSATION FUND, THE WORLD TRADE CENTER HEALTH PROGRAM and the JAMES ZADROGA ACT. He founded the FEALGOOD FOUNDATION, the largest 9/11 support organization in the country-borne from frustration to the inaction and lack of governmental support. He built a life-long career out of helping the many health victims from the 2001 disaster receive the financial compensation they deserve and gain a complete understanding of their rights for all 9/11 related injuries. His non-profit org is recorded as one of the largest fundraisers for this mission- amassing over $8.5M of active funding for the compensation bill plus another $5M raised to add to the WTC fund for first responders (since the inception of FGF in 2005) from online donations and public fundraising. John Feal became a major voice for all first responders working tirelessly between local and national fronts to gain legislative stakes for the rights of all those exposed to the many health hazards of ground zero.
By 2010, a new form of devastation appeared out of the shadows: a significant number of advanced and aggressive cancer cases suddenly grew within the many surviving rescuers and ground zero exposed. These victims were formerly cleared of any illnesses at first testing are now showing surprising numbers of cases of over 68 cancer types in the blood, brain, lung, liver, thyroid and skin. The 2010 bill was passed at a time when there were NO cancer cases, hence funds and congressional support was not prepared for any of this. The tsunami wave of new cancers that mutated after 8-10 years of dormancy does not even (yet) account for the "asbestos cancer... because that takes 20 years on average to manifest in the body, and we're now going on year 17," says Feal. Hence, new lobbying efforts for advanced cancer care treatment are now in full swing and Mr. Feal faces an even larger hurdle to upgade his mission to meet the current needs. (Complete interview coming soon.)
