Cancer survivors may face particular legal issues after treatment. Debra Wolf, Esq., from New York Legal Assistance Group, will outline some legal concerns that may come up, including access to and maintaining medical coverage, keeping one’s job or obtaining disability payments, and providing guidance for families through advanced directives. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
