AOL Jobs published an article about facing the many of the challenges associated with returning to work after cancer, featuring an interview with our Vice President of Programs and Strategy, Rebecca Nellis. The article explores these obstacles, as well as the resources offered through Cancer and Careers to help patients and survivors manage them. In the article, Rebecca explains why this is such a vital issue in the lives of many survivors:
"'The diagnosis brings up a whole host of questions about oneself and one's life, and work plays a very big role in that. We meet new people and say, 'What do you do?' And then we find out what the answer to that is, and we feel that we've learned something sort of profound about that person,' said Nellis. 'And so I think when a person is diagnosed, figuring out how that fits into the rest of their life becomes a huge part of the equation, and work is right at the top of that list.'"
