Where will my money come from if Iím too sick to work?, June 11, 2009, Toronto, ON: Join other Ontario patients and family members for this Money Matters presentation which will help you understand income and government benefits options, and how to access them, to help you cope with the financial challenges of diagnosis. It is relevant at any stage of treatment or if you are contemplating returning to work. The presentation will also be of interest to those who are relatively healthy but want to understand what is available in case they need to access programs in the future. Information on various income and benefits programs will be covered, including how the programs do and do not work together and how each defines illness or disability in order to qualify.
Presenters: Pamela Bowes, Manager of Program Development and Manager of the Money Matters Program, and and Ilene Shiller, both from the Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation.
Drop by Wellspring Sunnybrook, 2075 Bayview Avenue, from 6 to 7 p.m. for light refreshments and to meet others before the hour-long presentation and question and answer period begins at 7 p.m. For information or to RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org
