Cancer and Careers empowers and educates people with cancer to thrive in their workplaces by providing expert advice, interactive tools and educational events—all free-of-charge. The Cosmetic Executive Women Foundation launched Cancer and Careers in 2001 after being inspired by CEW Board members who faced the challenges of balancing work after a cancer diagnosis. Donations to CEW Foundation are tax deductible and used to support Cancer and Careers’ programs and services. For more information visit:
