In this podcast, Joanna explains the most important aspects of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act for people with cancer, as well as:

  • how the new paid sick leave and family and medical leave programs work
  • what to do if you've been laid off and have lost your employer-sponsored health insurance
  • why it's important to communicate with your creditors if you can't pay your bills right now
