Manager's Kit

After you’ve told your manager about your diagnosis, it will help to have a framework for discussions about your job. Understand that your manager will probably be worried for you — and for the company. The best antidote is information, which is why we created this kit. It contains need-to-know laws relating to cancer in the workplace; successful workplace strategies; tips for dealing with your HR department; and more.
