An Introduction to Beyond Ground Zero




Manhattan - New York City- Ground Zero

Beyond Ground Zero

...for those whose health was damaged by the events of 9/11



To begin with, we are not physicians or researchers in the medical field, we are instead ordinary people who actually live with the WTC Syndrome (World Trade Center Syndrome). This site is to document and discuss our illnesses, struggles with medical care, battles with the government and its agencies and other problems typically faced by the people who acquired WTC Syndrome. We will try to provide valuable resources and information such as up dates on health care, current legalization on worker compensation and what ever we can to help each other out.


This is OUR site.


It is also an open forum. We invite any one to add comments, write articles, and ask questions. You do not have to be affected with WTC Syndrome or be connected with 9/11 directly to participate. We welcome your comments and support.
