Hello to the good people that frequent this board.
I wanted to ask:
If you have Prostate Cancer that cannot be effectively cured because it has spread to the lymph nodes, would you in any shape or form fall into the category of the American Disabilities Act.
Thanks to all for the support given the last three years to me and others.

I found this on the ADA website:

"An individual with a disability is a person who --
Has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, or

Has a record of such an impairment, or

Is regarded as having such an impairment.

Examples of physical or mental impairments include, but are not limited to, such contagious and noncontagious diseases and conditions as orthopedic, visual, speech, and hearing impairments; cerebral palsy, epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, mental retardation, emotional illness, specific learning disabilities, HIV disease (whether symptomatic or asymptomatic), tuberculosis, drug addiction, and alcoholism."

Not sure if that answers your question. If not, go to the ADA homepage and read the questions and answers section. Hope that helps!
