9/11 RESPONDER GREG QUIBELL DIES OF 9/11 ILLNESS URGING CONGRESS

TO PASS 9/11 HEALTH & COMPENSATION BILL BEFORE 9/11



August 27, 2008ŚNew York, NY-- Greg Quibell died tonight in Long Island, NY. Quibell stars in the documentary SAVE THE BRAVE, which premieres tomorrow night, Thursday August 28, 2008 at the Bellmore Theater, located at 222 Pettit Ave in Bellmore, Long Island, NY. At 7 pm. The premiere is dedicated to Quibell.



"We have lost another champion, another hero. Greg fought to the end and delivered a clear message to Congress", comments Fealgood Foundation President, John Feal, "the Members of Congress cannot understand what these men and women are experiencing. Not only are those who served at Ground Zero suffering, sick and dying but families are devastated, putting children's futures at risk. These heroes must have an America which takes care of, instead of forgets, its heroes. The James Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Bill must be passed when Congress returns from recess so that this national disgrace can finally come to an end".



The documentary focuses on four responders and what's happened to them since their service as responders at Ground Zero following the attacks. FDNY Chief Jim Riches, Corrections officer Greg Quibell, EMS Charlie Giles and FDNY member John McNamara all share the intimate details of their Ground Zero experiences and consequences. In addition to sickness one couple in the film loses their home and now we suffer the loss of Greg Quibell.



Members of Congress can expect to receive SAVE THE BRAVE, the DVD when they return from recess. Glen Klein, a Fealgood Foundation board member states, "we are going to put the honest truth about Ground Zero's suffering heroes in their faces and hope that decency will prevail and they finally pass this legislation before another September 11th passes. All of us are wondering about cancers and other diseases that are showing up five, six, seven years later, what will our families face in the future", concludes former ESU member of the NYPD, Klein.



9/11 family members Rosemary Cain, Bruce DeCell and Monica Iken speak out urging Congress to pass the legislation immediately. The movie was directed and produced by 9/11 Chaplain Rev. Bill Minson with Robert Agriopoulos Videos.



Congressman Jerrold Nadler who authored the legislation with Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney appears in the documentary with colleagues Congressman Tim Bishop and Congresswoman Diane Watson of California who held a Congressional briefing in support of 9/11 responders two years ago.
