FILE - In this Sept. 11, 2001 file photo, a shell of what was once part of the facade of one of the twin towers of New York's World Trade Center rises above the rubble that remains after both towers were destroyed in the terrorist attacks. A federal health official is expected to announce in early June, 2012, whether people with cancer will be covered by an aid program for New Yorkers sickened by World Trade Center dust. An advisory committee recommended in March that the government open up the $4.3 billion program to people who developed cancers after being exposed to the toxic soot that fell on Manhattan when the towers collapsed.
