Welcome to the Cancer and Careers Newsfeed, your source for recent news and research on all issues related to work and cancer.
CancerToday published a great piece exploring the work-cancer balance, talking to survivors about their experiences and our Chief Mission Officer Rebecca Nellis about the best strategies to navigate work after a cancer diagnosis.
1.66 million new cancer cases are diagnosed each year in the United States. As of 2014, there are more than 14.5 million cancer survivors in the US. With the number of survivors continuously growing, there is an increasing need for resources and support to help them get back to everyday life and work after diagnosis and treatment.
In the spring of 2015, Cancer and Careers and Harris Interactive collaborated to design and field a survey to better understand the attitudes and behaviors of U.S. cancer survivors who worked during treatment, as well as unemployed cancer survivors and patients currently looking for work. The key findings and press release are available here.
The Cancer Support Community's radio show, "Frankly Speaking About Cancer," recently did a piece on balancing work and cancer, featuring Rebecca Nellis, VP of Programs & Strategy at Cancer and Careers, and Monica Bryant, Esq., Cancer Rights Attorney and COO of Triage Cancer.
