9/11 Heroes Contracting Blood Cancer

"The kind of thing that worries us is that we have a handful of cases of multiple myeloma in very young individuals ... a condition that almost always presents late in life," said Dr. Robin Herbert, co-director of the program at Mount Sinai Hospital. "That's the kind of odd, unusual and troubling finding that we are seeing already."
