Rare cancer types are defined as any cancers that have affected less than 200,000 individuals in the United States. In other words, the rate is less than .08 percent of the nation’s population. As of today, there are about 70 plus 9/11-related rare cancer types that are eligible for free health care under the WTCHP. Aside from these, other rare diseases affiliated to 9/11 may also receive the same coverage and benefits.
Sarcoma is a rare cancer also known as soft tissue cancer. Despite it being uncommon, sarcoma has been diagnosed among many 9/11 responders and survivors. There are two main types of sarcoma: bine and soft tissue. They can be found in any part of the body as they develop from soft tissue like fat, muscle, nerves, blood vessels, or deep skin tissue.
