Should a History of Cancer Be Considered a Workplace Disability?

Final thoughts

Cancer is a disability, but it does not have to be a weakness. In fact, fighting cancer can increase the overall ability of the patient as they learn patience, determination, and other worthwhile skills. So cancer, a disability, is not a weakness, and in fact can be a strength.

Or, in Racheli’s words, “I just hope to leave you with remembering that although cancer may be thought of as a disability to some, I see it as the ability to thrive through all of the adversities we face—even the ones in the workplace.”
