Firefighter Jim Ryan, who worked at Ground Zero
on 9/11 and for three months afterward, died of pancreatic cancer on Christmas
Day. Ryan, 48, wanted to go to D.C. last month to campaign for legislation
compensating those who got ill from working at the site.
"It's about all the guys who are going to come after me," said Ryan, who was too sick to go. "And there's going to be plenty of them."
