Working Matters: What you Need to Know
I have written before about the wonderful resources supported by Living Beyond Breast Cancer (www.lbbc.org). Here is information about a free teleconference next month that will address common employment concerns. The job market is tough enough without the added issue of a cancer diagnosis. If you have any work concerns, this would be a smart use of an hour in July:
