Cancer - Try the Mo Bros
Time to grow your Mo Bros
Cancer awareness has hit an all time high this month. In an effort to raise awareness for cancers that specifically affect men, including prostate and testicular cancer, Movember, which is an international organization which supports male mental health, particularly in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, is encouraging men throughout the world to grow Mo Bros.
Cancer is a debilitating disease for many workers. If you suffer from cancer you may be unable to work for at least 12 continuous months and qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
Men who join the Mo Bros movement are asked to find sponsorships for their efforts to donate to Movember. Woman can also help by supporting their men and gathering and making donations too. Movember and Sons, formerly known as November, started in 2003 and since that time has raised close to $300 million for their efforts. Last year the group raised $126 million. The money will be donated to Prostate Cancer Foundation, the Livestrong Foundation, and other groups supported by Movember.
The group encourages all men to join and let their Mo Bros become a walking, talking billboard for cancer for the 30 days of November. Not only will your efforts increase funds which are donated to cancer fighting research organizations, it also increases conversations which the group hopes will spur increased testing and screening for deadly cancerous conditions. Events by Movember are scheduled throughout the month of November.

Winning SSDI or SSI for Cancer
If you suffer from cancer and you are not able to work you may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. The Social Security Administration awards workers Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if the worker has a condition which is so severe it does not allow them to work for at least 12 continuous months.
The SSA maintains a list of conditions and symptoms they consider automatically disabling in the SSA Listing of Impairments. Cancer is evaluated under13.00 Malignant Neoplastic Diseases. To be considered disabled you must prove your condition is so severe that it is inoperable (cannot be treated with surgery), is unresectable (cannot be removed by surgery), and is recurrent (returned after an earlier remission).
If you suffer from cancer and have questions about SSDI or SSI benefits contact a disability lawyer. Disability lawyers can answer your disability questions and determine what medical evidence you will need to win SSDI or SSI benefits.
In the meantime, ask your family and friends to grow their Mo Bros to generate donations for new cancer treatments and increase cancer awareness.
