I just read a reply that I wanted to respond to. The Americans with Disabilities Act provides us with the right to take UNPAID leave time for treatment. You do not have to use your vacation time or your sick time if you don't want to (or if you can afford not to.) There is also State Disability, which you will automatically apply for when you fill out the paperwork for the Americans with Disabilities Act paperwork.
I chose to take my treatment sick days as unpaid days and when I was done with treatment, I had like two weeks vacation left, and just as much sick time. Of course, we had two incomes at the time and not a tight budget, so I was able to live without the pay. The time was able to be saved. I just hope all of you who were on chemo this year knew about this. Don't let your bosses make you think they're doing you a favor because if they are making you use sick time or vacation time for chemo and recovery from chemo, you may be able to do something about it.
