In a story that inspired the nation, New York City police detective Lou Alvarez advocated in support of the first responders who served at Ground Zero following the 911 attack. Helen and Jerry were honored to sit down with his brother Phil Alvarez, and talk about the Alvarez’s family’s journey. As a veteran detective with the Suffolk County Police Department, Phil knows the meaning of duty and sacrifice. His brother made the ultimate sacrifice, walking through treatment for stage 4 cancer, and finally, time in hospice care.
Phil shows his dedication to carrying on Lou’s legacy by reaching out to any first responders that might be experiencing health effects after working with rescue and recovery efforts in New York. If you served at Ground Zero and need information about benefits available to you, contact Phil at (855) 585-1399. You can find additional information on the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund website or The Feal Good Foundation.
The Heart of Hospice salutes the first responders that serve our country and we honor the legacy of Lou and Phil Alvarez. You are The Heart of Hospice.
