On Beyond Cancer

My life with metastatic breast cancer

Retiring February 1 December 19, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — onbeyondcancer @ 9:16 am

My retirement application went before the state board last week and was approved.  I am officially retiring on February 1.  My last day of work will be January 30.


I am still in complete shock that the government processed this so quickly.  I’ll be spending a lot of January finishing up projects, including a paper that I hope to submit to a journal by late February.


After I finish working I’ll have to start the social security disability application process, which should be another adventure.

  3. It´s good they processed your application so quickly. And even another article, wow, how awkward at this stage of your career. I hope the disability pension will come forward soon, so that you can devote your time and energy to the people near you.
