Work is an important part of many people’s lives and most employed people diagnosed with cancer wonder how it will affect their ability to work. The information in this section has been designed to help you understand more about how to manage your working life after a cancer diagnosis.
Whether you are able to continue working during treatment for cancer or while caring for someone with cancer will depend on a number of factors, including the nature of your job, treatment side effects, the flexibility of your workplace, your leave entitlements and personal matters (such as your finances and how much support you have from family and friends).
We hope this section helps you to find a working arrangement that suits your situation.
