Yes I Have Breast Cancer…But I STILL Need to Work!

TCE Summit Helps Employees and Breast Cancer Survivors to Stay Employed!

According to the BreastCancer.org, “…in 2017, an estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S. As of March 2017, there are more than 3.1 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment.” I know, I am one of them. In 2016, I was diagnosed with a surprise Stage 3, Triple Negative Breast Cancer followed by aggressive chemotherapy and radiation. “It’s a tough time for many women who are anxious about their appearance, dignity, self-esteem and paying their bills.” says Francina R. Harrison, MSW, known nationally as “The Career Engineer®” (TCE).

Don’t Get Anxious – Get Prepared! In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, for every paid registration, The Career Engineer will provide one (1) complimentary TCE Career & Business Breakfast and Summit ticket for a breast cancer patient or survivor who is still working but anxious about their career or business future. I’ve talked to women in the workforce who are fearful about breast cancer treatment and how it will impact their careers or future. During my journey, powered by fierce faith and TCE “mental Push-Ups”, I stayed in business, spoke at conferences and appeared on TV (often the day after chemo)! That’s why this year’s theme, “The POWER of NOW & NEXT”, is so important. I have learned that when bad news hits us, it’s what we do NEXT ..that matters,” says The Career Engineer, the TCE Summit Breakfast keynote speaker.
