June 5 is National Cancer Survivor's Day

June 5 is National Cancer Survivor's day, when we celebrate our family and friends who survived cancer, which takes so many of our loved ones' lives. Every year over 1 million people receive a cancer diagnosis, and many of them will not survive the disease.

National Cancer Survivor Day is a U.S. holiday and this year the Social Security Department is asking and encouraging all Americans to schedule regular medical checkups for the purpose of identifying signs of cancer early. The earlier cancer is detected, the earlier its sufferers can get the medical treatment they need to get better -- and this means that there will be a higher chance of survival. Indeed, sometimes, a matter of months in cancer detection is a matter of life and death.

In addition to encouraging U.S. citizens to go for regular medical checkups, the Social Security Department also offers important medical benefits to individuals suffering from cancer. If individuals can show that their cancer illness prevents them from carrying out their job duties for at least one year, or will result in death, they can usually qualify for these important benefits. In fact, in severe cases of certain types of cancer, the Social Security Department may be willing to award a Compassionate Allowance, which means the department will expedite the claim and process it quickly with only a minimum amount of medical documentation. More information about the Compassionate Allowances program is readily available on the Social Security Department's website.

Numerous Minnesota residents are suffering from all kinds of disabilities related to cancer, and they are unable to earn a living. This June 5, in honor of National Cancer Survivor's Day, our law firm would like to remind you that if you are unable to work and in need of government assistance, a Social Security disability attorney may be able to help.
