Founded in 2001 as a program of Cosmetic Executive Women Foundation, Cancer and Careers is the only program of its kind: a comprehensive and definitive resource for working people with cancer. Our empowering message is that, with the right tools and information, it is possible to thrive in the workplace during and after treatment. Our vision is to eliminate fear and uncertainty for working people with cancer by providing a wide array of online, print, and in-person resources. Through our programs, we fill a need that is not met elsewhere in the cancer community.
With an estimated 780,000 working-aged cancer patients returning to the workplace this year, our resources are more vital than ever. Please consider supporting Cancer and Careers in one (or more) of the ways listed below. Thank you!

Don’t take our word for it - Our evaluations have been consistently glowing:
100% of the attendees from our National Conference said they could use the information they learned in their day-to-day life
100% of the attendees from our National Conference would recommend this conference to others
“this conference on “Work and Cancer” was the first time I have received any information that addressed the needs of a survivor returning to work and their legal issues and rights … I would urge all cancer treatment centers, oncologists, social workers and of course the newly diagnosed patients and survivors to attend future conferences and participate in the teleconferences for a wealth of beneficial information ... Cancer and Careers and the information they presented is long overdue. Thank you Cancer and Careers.” Gloria, Breast Cancer Survivor
