Cure magazine shared the story of Sue Tony, an acute myeloid leukemia survivor, to illustrate the challenges that cancer survivors face when changing careers after cancer.
Our Chief Mission Officer, Rebecca Nellis, was quoted saying, “The cancer experience for some is eye-opening, and there’s a drive for more meaning in their work or flexibility in their work. In broad strokes, we’re seeing more people shifting careers. For some people, it’s determined by what their treatment is necessitating and the reality of what they can do. There are always many things that people going through cancer treatment need to consider and balance when it comes to supporting themselves, their families and their recovery.”
One of our career coaches, Julie Jansen, was also interviewed to share advice on making a career change after cancer. Her advice included a three-pronged approach: Conducting a self assessment, identifying opportunities and obstacles, and creating an action plan.
