First-Ever 'Cancer and Careers' Seminar Debuts in Orange County
Date:3/10/2008

- Cancer Resource Group Teams Up with YWCA & Roche to Educate Patients on How to Manage the Daunting Challenge of Balancing Cancer and a Career -

NEW YORK, March 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In recognition of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, Cancer and Careers, a non-profit program founded by Cosmetic Executive Women Foundation, and Roche are launching a seminar which offers guidance for the hundreds of thousands of people living with cancer on how to return to work after a cancer diagnosis. The "Balancing Cancer and Careers" seminar -- hosted by YWCA of North Orange County -- will take place from 5-7 p.m. on March 11, 2008 at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, Calif.

"Work doesn't stop once you've been diagnosed with cancer. Many women have to -- and want to -- work during and after treatment," said Carlotta Jacobson, president of Cosmetic Executive Women and founder of Cancer and Careers. "In California, alone, the American Cancer Society estimates that more than 156,000 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed this year. For those women who return to work, Cancer and Careers offers information and tools to help them manage their battle with cancer as effectively as they manage the rest of their lives."

The seminar is designed to ease the back-to-work transition for people with cancer by addressing the unique challenges of cancer in the workplace, and focusing on the issues faced when trying to balance both treatment and work. Cancer and Careers offers useful advice on how to create an action plan; how to address your diagnosis with employers and coworkers; how to inquire about effective treatments that may allow more flexibility and what you need to know about your legal rights in the workplace.

"The role of your oncologist goes beyond simply diagnosing and treating, and also includes helping to identify the most optimal treatment that preserves one's pre-cancer lifestyle to the greatest extent possible. For example some treatments,
