Ten years after cancer-stricken NYPD Det. Thomas Weiner received a promotion on his deathbed from Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, his family is still fighting for recognition that he died from working at Ground Zero.
The NYPD pension board Wednesday punted on an application to grant Weiner’s widow a line-of-duty pension back to a panel of doctors that previously ruled his pancreatic cancer existed before Sept. 11, 2001.
“My brother lived for the job and he gave his life for the job,” said Delores Weiner, a retired NYPD detective.
