QUEENS, N.Y. - Jim Christoforou was 67 when he died from the coronavirus, but he still had a lot of living to do after surviving head and neck cancer in 2005 - the result, he believed, of being covered with dust when the World Trade Center collapsed.
"He had that fight. He wanted to live. He wanted life and he was able to beat stage four cancer and we were hoping that this time around he was still going to have that fight, and I know he did, but this was a little different. Unfortunately," said Maria Christoforou, his daughter.
