I recently was diagnosed and am undergoing treatment for bladder cancer. Like most the initial discovery shocked me and catapulted me into a period of self evaluation of what is important in life. We are fortunate to have a great insurance plan. However, as an architect, I am hesitant to take on further commissions until my case is resolved, since a project may last several years. At present I am a solo practisioner, in my early 60's. Prior to the diagnosis I was concidering growing the practice to a small 8 person group and create a transistion plan. Current events kinds of leaves me hanging. My current thoughts are to close up shop and go work for some one else, either as an advisor within an institutional setting, or public service. Timing for change isnt to bad since my major projects are coming to an end. Any advice?
