My family is no stranger to cancer and the accompanying stress. We have heard the words, “You have cancer” more times than I can count on one hand. The most recent diagnosis came shortly after I started working here at Plenty. I was devastated by the news and stressed over the impact that it would have on my new career. I worried about my focus and managing time off. I feared that Plenty’s leadership team would dismiss me as apathetic towards my work. My worries only compounded more stress to the situation. Fortunately, my fears (in regards to work) were quickly reduced. Upon telling the Plenty team, the only questions asked were, “How can we help?” and “What do you need?” The emails of support started flowing in from my Plenty family. While I was not at peace with my dad’s cancer, I quickly found peace and comfort in my leaders and colleagues. Today, I stood by my parents as my dad had his last radiation treatment. I was able to take a break from work to be exactly where I needed to be. Thankfully, I know that as my family’s journey with this terrible disease progresses, I will continually receive support, encouragement, and understanding from my team.
