    'He had won this battle': Hundreds say goodbye to Luis Alvarez, 9/11 first responder

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...er/1637846001/

    From article:

    Alvarez, 53, was among thousands of first responders who spent months digging through the rubble for survivors, then bodies. He died Saturday after a years-long battle with cancer he blamed on three months toiling at Ground Zero.

    Police Commissioner James O'Neill eulogized Alvarez as a dedicated officer who fought to ensure that the needs of first responders won't be ignored. He noted that 23 police officers died the day of the attack – and 222 have died since. He implored Congress to reauthorize the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund.
