Changing the conversation about work and cancer

People With Advanced Cancer

We are increasingly working with people who have advanced or metastatic cancer, those who doctors may describe as ‘treatable but incurable’, who are returning to work or looking for employment. People in this group can survive and work successfully for many years post diagnosis (if they wish to and have the opportunities to do this)) but often face ignorance or prejudice at work.

In the UK people in this group are protected by the Equality Act but can still be dismissed by their employer on the grounds of ‘capability’.
This year we are working to raise awareness of this issue and have invited those with advanced or metastatic cancer, and who are still working, to contribute their stories and photos.

If you would like to contribute your story and maybe a photo, please get in touch.
