I wrote all about being told the day after my last chemotherapy treatment that I would not have a job for the next academic year... I am not alone in losing a job during or after cancer treatment and I hope by being open about what happened to me, it can help others going through it.
I wrote something that is pretty raw, something I tried to glaze over in my Open Letter Blog Post here an-open-letter-to-me.html but found there was more to say about the whole being in active treatment as a breast cancer patient and being told the day after my last chemotherapy that I did not have a job for the following academic year (teacher).
I shared more detail on how this made me feel and how I am shaking it off and moving on to bigger and better things. I have found through this plot twist that I am not the only person this has happened to; in fact many people have reached out to me about losing their jobs or having to leave their jobs due to the affects of cancer.
I hope to move forward on finding a way to help people manage this time in their lives, these blank spaces on their resumes. (And wow, I just realized I have TWO Taylor Swift song references in this post...can you tell I have a preteen daughter?).
