I'm 25 years old and am about to graduate with my Bachelor's degree and a nice GPA. The problem is I have Ewing's Sarcoma a rare bone cancer that doesn't seem like it will ever go away and a physical disability (nerve damage in my right leg) but I've been successfully keeping it at bay for 5 years now with regular treatment. Due to physical restrictions I wouldn't be able to do something like door to door sales and I understand my time is precious and my medical situation could change at any moment but if I'm alive I WANT to contribute to society and make something of myself and take some of the financial burden off my girlfriend and family. I just get very discouraged when it comes to applying for jobs because I either feel like they won't consider me because every 4-5 weeks I'd have to miss some hours of work for chemo and I would probably need a day or 2 of time off for recovery at some point. I can function on most of my chemo days I just wouldn't be able to be physically at the office or place of work. Is there any hope of me actually landing into a career or should I just worry about my health and try to forget about it?
