I was diagnosed with b-cell lymphoma in January and informed my principal of my school. My treatments would be weekly for two days; therefore, I would only be able to work three days out of the week. Well....once the treatments began, they made me really sick. Not once did he call or email me to check on me. I had to be sure to contact him about when I would be able to come in. So, when I finally come back, he didn't ask if I needed accommodations or anything. When I was walking around he may ask how I was doing and I would say I'm hanging in there. Well... when I needed help with the students he responded that I needed to look at my classroom management. When I was observed and I was sitting down instead of walking around, I was ostracized for that. Students were walking around (which I had already told to sit down). I wasn't going to scream and holler at the kids and make myself sicker. I couldn't call for help. So, I was at a loss. Now, knowing my condition and the fact that I am depending on my insurance and my income I get terminated. What are my rights as a cancer patient?
