Some people with cancer are able to go to work and do other everyday things the same as usual while they get treatment. Others find that they need more rest or just feel too sick and cannot do as much.
If you can return to work shortly after your treatment, you may find that it helps you maintain your identity and even boosts your self-esteem. For some people the transition back to work is easy, but for others it takes some adjustment.
Find out about the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), a law that allows employees to take reasonable unpaid leave for certain family and medical reasons. It can provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year.
Learn about COBRA, the federal law that gives you the right to choose to temporarily keep the group health insurance benefits that you would otherwise lose after you reduce your working hours, quit your job, or lose your job.
