Cancer and Work — By on March 16, 2009 at 9:00 am

Once you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, work doesn’t stop. Over 80% of cancer survivors return to work after treatment. And once diagnosed, work becomes even more important. “How do I tell my boss? What will my coworkers think? How do I balance work and treatment? What can I expect from my employer? What are my legal rights? What do other women do?”

Cancer and Careers is a resource for working women with cancer offering information and tools to help working women manage their battle with cancer as effectively as they manage the rest of their lives. Cancer and Careers is committed to changing the face of cancer in the workplace by providing a comprehensive website, free publications, and a series of support groups and educational seminars for employees with cancer.

The Managing Through Cancer Pioneers program helps employers face the challenge of cancer in the workplace. Member companies enhance their own workplace culture, while also demonstrating their commitment to setting a standard of support for all employees battling the disease.

Cancer and Careers is a program of the CEW Foundation, the charitable arm of Cosmetic Executive Women, Inc., a New York-based non-profit trade organization of 4,000 executives in the beauty, cosmetics, fragrance and related industries.  For more information visit: Cancer and Careers
