The National September 11th Memorial and Museum is set to open later this month, and now there's a push to install a monument honoring rescue workers sickened by toxic dust.

A coalition of city officials, labor leaders and survivor advocates says the monument would help tell the full story of sacrifice and loss from that day.

One of the workers injured while searching for survivors says the tribute would give him and his comrades a chance to hold their heads high.

The federal government says about 30,000 people are enrolled in its multi-billion-dollar monitoring and treatment program for those with illnesses related to the attacks.
