My finance was just diagnosed with lung cancer. He has a small business with 2 employee's. It is a very technical business, and he is the technical brains behind the operation. When he is not at work, no progress happens on customer orders.
We don't even know the treatment plan yet, but we have customer's who want committments for orders and projects. (Normal course of the business.)
What do we tell the customer's so that we don't lose them forever? Reality is that there will be a period of time when we are unable to produce any work. We would like the business to be a survivor too.
Additional question. Do we layoff the employee's during the treatment?
