Unsurprising to many, finances is the number one reason U.S. cancer patients and survivors want to work, followed by their feeling well enough to work, based on the results of the survey conducted by Harris Poll for Cancer and Careers.
Chief Mission Officer Rebecca Nellis explains, "the data continue to highlight how valuable work is-- from a paycheck and benefits to the belief that work aids in treatment and recovery."
While employers are not required to lower standards for their employees with cancer, under the Americans with Disabilities Act, they must offer reasonable accommodations in an effort to support their employees ability to continue to do their jobs.
