2016 Survey on Work & Cancer Results
Social media has changed the rules of privacy for almost everyone. But for people diagnosed with cancer, social media use comes with the additional complications of online disclosure, which can have unintended consequences. In this year's CAC survey, we polled survivors on their experiences with disclosing their cancer online:
  • Nearly one in five cancer survivors polled said that revealing their cancer diagnosis on social media negatively impacted their careers*
  • One in ten said they experienced repercussions at work because of their disclosure*
  • 33 percent of survivors who use social media felt that social media gave them a support network that was always available.*
As with any aspect of the cancer journey, the decision to disclose, whether online or in-person, is a personal one based on a variety of factors. For the full infographic and more information, click here.
