Cancer pt loses EI benefits during treatment

  1. 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.

    Imagine if our cancer patients had to worry about the added cost of treatments as well.
