Cancer treatment is inherently complex, often making work particularly challenging when fatigue cuts into the amount of work that can be done in a day. However, there are still ways to make work happen, and often it can be a positive aspect during treatment.
According to oncologist, Neel Shah, MD, FACP, at Munster, Indiana's Northwest Oncology, with the advancements made in cancer prevention, screening and treatments, survival rates have improved drastically. At this point Shah points out that most of his patients are survivors.
Survivor and business owner, Jason Stalnecker, says he reshaped his business with "the right people" and remote capabilities, stating, "I really had to readjust how I ran the business, since I could not be there as much as I had been."
Being challenged by low energy amid continuing demand, more people demonstrate that by working, cancer will not take over their lives.
