I have stage IV lung cancer and going through chemo treatment currently every three weeks. There doesn't seem to be an end date to treatment any time soon. Currently I'm a contract employee at which has allowed me to qualify for Medicaid which is great! However I have to pay my own taxes and the pay isn't that great. There's an opportunity I've been thinking of applying for but scared to b/c my current boss is great with my treatment days, etc. Switching jobs would mean switching to reach health care, taxes being taken out (yay!) I'd have copays, I'm nervous! What if they aren't ok with my treatment days? Any advice? Should I just stay? I don't want to stay in a job forever just bc of cancer... life is too short.
