Be the Boss Over Cancer

Following Breast CA and reconstruction I had 2 additional surgeries not related to the CA.  I lost my job however, during the breast reconstruction period.  I have not worked for 2 years now and need to get back to work.  I have submitted numerous resumes.  In the past I have never had an issue with getting a job.  At this point, I feel like I need assistance.
