Becky Lazinger, Jack Delaney, Ken Fairben, and John Delaney are all survivors of 9/11
who share their story through the UnMASKing HOPE film. It is important to recognize the physical and mental health effects that 9/11 survivors live with today. Recent analysis of WTC Health Program enrolled 9/11 survivors found that:

  • The average number of WTC certified conditions per enrolled survivor is 2.7

  • 23.1% of 9/11 survivors experienced posttraumatic stress disorder and 11.9% experienced depression
