Legal issues under the ADA for Cancer patients


Recommended Posts

The following link gives a very good description of cancer patients and their families' rights under the ADA.

One thing the article does not address is that some current court cases have said that cancer is not considered a disability. The main case involved a woman with Stage III breast cancer. It is thus, best to contact an attorney as soon as you think there may be some discriminatin going on, as to how to proceed. In our case, the events happened so swiftly, that we had no direct knowledge of what was happening.
