Here's an article about how a lot of cancer patients run out of EI before their treatments are done. I didn't realise EI benefits for sickness are only 15 weeks long. Thankfully when my husband was battling cancer he had coverage from his work. However, even that was only 60% of what we were used to and five years later we are still struggling financially because of it. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/cancer-pati...181714797.html
Imagine if our cancer patients had to worry about the added cost of treatments as well.
