I am a stage 4 breast cancer survivor (just reached a year with metastatic breast cancer) and I'm looking to reenter the workforce now that my trial is working well and I'm feeling well enough to work. I'm wondering, if I find a job that is full time and has long term disability benefits, would my diagnosis limit me from receiving those types of benefits since my cancer is a preexisting condition? I'm having a hard time deciding how much I should be working (part time vs full time) but would be willing to have a full time job if I had that reassurance that if things went south again with my health that I would have long term disability coverage. I'm not sure how to navigate this! Any advice is appreciated.
