Adelphi to host cancer forum on work and finances

A person going through cancer must make numerous decisions in addition to doctors and treatment, many of which involve finances.  On Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 6 p.m., the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Program is partnering with Cancer and Careers to provide an educational forum on Balancing Work, Finances and Cancer during and after a cancer diagnosis.

Christine Brennan, director of Programs at Cancer and Careers, will explore the practical and legal issues that sit at the intersection of work and cancer, including deciding whether or not to work during treatment, privacy and disclosure, managing side effects and other workplace challenges, plus  tips for job-hunting and job re-entry.

After Brennan’s presentation, the audience will watch and then discuss a managing finances webinar, which will offer tips for improving financial health after a cancer diagnosis and treatment. Topics include rebuilding credit, dealing with medical bills, options for financial assistance and what to think about when considering filing for bankruptcy.

The free forum, sponsored by grants from The Junior Coalition of the Manhasset Women’s Coalition and Sientra Full Circle, will be held at Alumni House at Adelphi University in Garden City. For reservations, call 516-877-4325 to register, or email
