TYLA Legal Guide for Cancer Patients

TYLA's Legal Guide for Cancer Patients provides an overview of the legal issues that someone who is fighting or has fought a battle with cancer may face, including guardianship for cancer survivors with children, employment issues, insurance coverage, estate planning and concerns about privacy, to name just a few.

This Guide, prepared by a committee of Texas attorneys with guidance and input from several cancer advocacy centers, is intended to be an informative resource upon which you or your loved one can rely to answer legal questions like, "Am I entitled to time off work?", "Should I have a will?" and "How do I tell my doctors that I don't want to be placed on life support if my condition is terminal?"

To the left, you may download the entire guide in English or in Spanish, print a specific section that addresses questions you may have, or make a request that our office send you a free copy, while supplies last.
