Sad to report.
The dust-covered 9/11 survivor whose haunting image became an emblem of the tragedy has died after a yearlong battle with stomach cancer, her family said.
'My mom fought an amazing battle', Noelle Borders told The Post of her 42-year-old mother, Marcy Borders. 'Not only is she the ‘Dust Lady’ but she is my hero and she will forever live through me'.
MarketWatch reports that the former Bank of America worker was dubbed the “Dust Lady” after a photographer snapped a photograph of her stricken and caked with ash after fleeing the World Trade Center.
John Borders called his cousin a 'hero” on Facebook, saying she “unfortunately succumbed to the diseases that has ridden her body since 9/11'.
