Go to https://www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/cancer.cfm. Print out, read, give to HR, whatever you can. Yes cancer is a disability and you should be accommodated!!!

I was wondering about the same thing. As a teacher it usually the students with accommodations! However, I have been really impaired especially my ability to focus, process auditory instructions and short term memory. I finished chemo in 11/15. I have had a few improvements but o have a ways to go. It was suggested I have neuropsych testing to measure the impairment.

Teresha, I contacted my oncologist who referred me to a speech and language therapist for an evaluation. The tests took about 3 hours as the do many subtests to Check many aspects of your functionality. Mine came up with deficits in 4 areas. They seriously affect my ability to do my job. Unfortunately my Ada accommodations were denied so I’ll be trying another approach.

Good luck to you!

I am so fortunate I have a great employer that has been very supportive since my diagnosis. Two and a half years after ending chemo I am still foggy on most days. I discussed my situation with my supervisor and my duties were shifted slightly so I am no longer customer facing and work from home full time. There is nothing worse than loosing your words during a client meeting.
