September 11 2001 Attack




Below is a summary page of the resources the Center gathered after the September 11 Attack,  If you know of others please contact us at icdri@icdri.org. 

Mesothelioma & Asbestos Awareness Center

 Mesothelioma is a rare cancer which is caused only by exposure to asbestos fibers. On and after September 11, thousands of people in the lower Manhattan area were directly exposed to the toxic cloud created by the collapse of the towers - which contained an estimated 400 tons of asbestos. Due to the long latency period, these individuals are just now starting to become ill with mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.


Mesothelioma.comis one of the Internet’s greatest resources for those seeking information about this life-threatening disease.  Our researchers spend countless hours preparing the most up-to-date information about the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases.

Formed in response to the events of September 11th, our mission is to educate and support individuals who are vulnerable to traumatic stress. Project Cope has an emphasis on special populations, including children with disabilities, adults with disabilities, and individuals with prior trauma (e.g., children in foster care).
