The by-product of surviving child cancer - Unemployment

Washington - Dutch research into child cancer survivors has revealed that most of these survivors remain unemployed and the chances are twice as much compared to those without a history of childhood cancer.

Among the types of cancer survivors, those that have survived brain cancer or other central nervous system tumors run a risk five times more pronounced of remaining jobless. The Children, who came out of blood-cell and bone marrow cancers, stood a far greater risk of not finding a job. Women and Americans topped the highly susceptible list for remaining unemployed after surviving cancer.
