Resume Building and Writing,
Before I came down with brain cancer I was working as a Manager for a Medical office. But ultimately I am aiming for a Career in Cyber Security/IT. I will be starting an intensive training for Cyber security in August. I am looking for advice on navigating changing careers while I'm still undergoing treatments

Cancer and Careers Staff Comment:
Thanks so much for reaching out to Cancer and Careers. Congratulations on making the career move! It sounds like you’ve got an idea of what the actual steps to make the change are, but we have a number of resources that may be helpful as you navigate the transition including some job search tools.
To start, I’d recommend checking out the recording of our Career Change webinar from earlier this year, as it provides insight into the process, some considerations as you decide on a new career, and guidance on direction and steps towards making it successful.
I hope the above resources are helpful! We also have information on managing treatment once you begin work in the At Work section of our website.
Please let us know if you’d like any other information or resources, or if you’d like to discuss your situation further. You can always feel free to reach out to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best of luck! It can feel scary to take on a change like this, but in the end can be so worth it!

Hi I am still going under treatment for stage 4 uterine cancer
It drives me nuts sitting at home I was wondering if you could help me find a job I can do I would perfect to find an online job where I can work from home but I would take anything right now just getting disability and having 2 teenagers and being a single parent makes it very very hard to even make it each month and that leads to my depression getting bad on days. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and hopefully you will be able to help me
