The members of the JTTF and our ESU family are having a 10-13 Fundraiser for Det. Peter McGovern formerly of ESS 8 and ESS 3. He is presently assigned to the Joint Terrorism Task Force. Pete is very sick from an unknown disease from his endless hours at Ground Zero. According to all of Peters doctors he has an UNKNOWN sickness that his body produces blood clots. Pete has gone through extensive testing, surgery and on numerous medications. Pete is also suffering from a financial burden due to the fact that he doesn't have a diagnosed illness and most of the World Trade center programs cannot help due to the unknown disease. He has gone in front of the Departments disability board and they have denied him 2 times already. Most of the personnel have advised him that they will not authorize him for a WTC illness because they are afraid of opening up Pandora's box.
