Be the Boss Over Cancer

On June 17, 2011, Cancer and Careers will take the next step in our mission to empower and educate people with cancer to thrive in their work environment by presenting a national conference on the complexities working people face as they try to balance their cancer treatment and recovery with employment. We know that every cancer survivor has different needs, a unique situation. However we have learned that no matter where people live, the big issues are the same: insurance, unemployment, legal problems, navigating the workplace.

Our goal for the National Conference on Work & Cancer is to bring together experts on these key topics and make them directly accessible to patients and survivors. Through both larger group sessions and smaller, more targeted breakout group discussions, the Conference program will give working people with cancer the opportunity to learn from both experts and fellow attendees, and get answers to their most pressing questions about combining work and treatment.

This program is pending approval by the National Association of Social Workers (provider #886534115) for 5 continuing education contact hours.

    When we hear about cancer in its many forms, why do we never here about MEN2, Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma.

    In the last five months my sister, her two daughters and one out of three granddaughters were diagnosed with this type of cancer. With exception of the granddaughter, all three had their thyroid out as well as some lymph glands. The twelve year old is facing surgery on July 7. I was tested and am negative, as are others in the family. No one can tell us where it came from, who had it and passed it on or was my sister the first to have that gene?

    It seems they know so much more about this cancer in Germany than here in the U.S..

    We are looking for answers.

    Thank You,
