    Cancer Support And Working With Cancer

    in Jobs

    The diagnosis of cancer can put you or someone you love smack dab in the middle of unfamiliar territory. And, when that happens, as a survivor or caregiver, having immediate access to cancer support and resources saves time, reduces stress and can make your unexpected journey a little smoother. But, what about your job? Should you keep working? What should you say or not say to your coworkers or boss?    Our first guest, Monica Bryant, is the Chief Operating Officer for Triage Cancer.  A non-profit serving survivors, caregivers, and professionals by providing a comprehensive resource for connecting to information and experts right when you need it the most. Our second guest, Rebeccas Nellis, is the Vice President of Programs and Strategy for Cancer And Careers. Rebecca’s organization understands that work doesn’t stop when you or someone you love is diagnosed or completes treatment. Through the programs they offer, you can better understand and prepare for your future, even if it means changing direction. Both are guest speakers at the upcoming Survivors Convention in Nashville, TN. Join as as they share invaluable insights for you and your loved ones.   Michele’s shows combine scientific research, cutting-edge guests and personal stories that highlight the challenges and successes of deliberately deciding to change the direction of your life.
