Appearance and self esteem below average from breast cancer treatmentSave as Favorite
Good Day, I have been employed within business office field for over twenty years. 2011 was certified and employed for Home Health Aide position until diagnose of breast cancer April 2013. Agency kind to allow me work in office during most treatment, however, immediately following final radiation treatment supervisor demand return to field work. My hair in process of return, appearance is awkward. Therapy to strengthen side of surgeries in process and experience side affects from Tamoxifen. Our family financial status from this illness is poverty. Is there any form of referral to employers who will give me the opportunity of gainful employment? Most people continue to stare or stereotype my appearance, in addition, I am desperately trying to improve strength and stamina to work eight hours a day including practice to restore my brain ability. Please contact me with any information that may improve the chances of a positive response from prospective employer. Thank you very much for your time, is greatly appreciated. Kindest regards, Kelley Doepel (at the time employer learns of cancer treatment, appears automatic concern that I may lose time from work for doctor appointments, illness return, questionable of ability to think and perform duties, etc.) Yes, there are abundance of people ignorant to actual process. Help. Should I indicate illness at all on resume?
