Protecting your rights

As a cancer patient who is ill, disabled, or undergoing cancer treatments, you may experience problems with your employer or your health insurance. Some cancer patients have been fired from their job, lost their health insurance, did not receive enough sick leave, or they did not receive the support services they were entitled to.

People who are recovering from cancer shouldn’t have to go through the added worry and stress of being discriminated against or the fear of losing their job.

To help you understand your rights, Lymphoma Foundation of America partners with nonprofit organizations such as the Cancer Legal Resource Center. CLRC has a national, toll free Telephone Assistance Line (1-866-THE-CLRC) where you can get free, confidential information about relevant laws and resources for your particular situation. CLRC will explain how the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) can help protect you from discrimination. CLRC also has a professional panel of attorneys, insurance agents, and accountants who provide helpful information to cancer patients.



Lymphoma Foundation of America has co-sponsored conferences with CLRC to help cancer patients, physicians, nurses, social workers, and employers learn about the laws that protect cancer patients from discrimination.
