    Work problems

    Oh No

    My surgeon gave me time off in between radiation & first course of chemo to recover for my surgery. Love the way my employer just cancels my disability (we have private disability insurance) before I'm even released back to work yet took 60 days to get me any money after my diagnosis. I'm sure administrative positions never had these issues when they had their cancer experiences! I guess the stress of having my surgery in less than a week doesn't help.
