Work concerns for cancer sufferers

ALMOST half of working Queensland cancer survivors have been negatively affected in their jobs as a result of their diagnosis, new research shows.

Cancer Council Queensland's 1000 Survivor Study is an Australian-first project, assessing the physical, emotional and practical concerns of cancer survivors.

The survey found the majority of cancer survivors who had work concerns (66%) did not receive help following their diagnosis.

Cancer Council Queensland spokeswoman Katie Clift said that of those cancer survivors with work concerns, about half were unable to work in the same way as before their diagnosis.
