I have bladder cancer and there is a shortage of BCG for treatment right now. I have been informed by my hospital, doctor and Merck Pharma that there will not be any BCG available for my treatment until late November early December or later.
I have been unemployed and living on general assistance and food stamps from the county since April. I don't know if I should start looking for full time work with the possibility of accepting a position when my treatment (6 weeks of BCG treatment) is looming in the future.
I am concerned that I might be let go from any position that I might obtain if I have to take a day or two off for six weeks come December if I have obtain work. I also don't know how much longer I can live like this with just food stamps and 140 dollars general assistance.
Would you please give me your suggestions?
