"My case was relatively mild, requiring two surgeries and six weeks of daily radiation, but I knew the disruption to the lives of other women was even greater. Like me, many of these women were employed, their families dependent upon their income and health insurance. I wondered what happens to women who are too ill to work and whose jobs might be in jeopardy if they take too much time off for treatment and recovery. I began asking questions of my healthcare providers and learned that while indeed this is a problem, they were not aware of a solution. I know all too well how stressful it is to struggle financially while fighting cancer, and I’m determined to help prevent other women, men, and their families from the same."
