Helping Cancer patients, survivors and carers return to work.

Our Mission

MyMuse bridges the gap that can occur between employers and their employees who are returning to work following their own or their loved ones cancer diagnosis and treatment. We advise employers on how to successfully manage cancer in the workplace, and we advise individuals affected by cancer or carers on returning to work, remaining in work or finding employment at any stage during or after cancer treatment.

Our Aim

For those affected by cancer, work is important. A job can restore a sense of normality and wellbeing as well contributing to financial independence, but many cancer survivors find returning to work a struggle as they deal with cancer’s short or longer term side effects.

For carers, things can be just as difficult. Few employers have a carers’ policy and many carers are hesitant to ask for time off work in case it affects their employment prospects.

Employers often find it tough too – knowing the right thing to say and when, and what to do. Getting it wrong can prove expensive or significantly damage your company’s reputation.

Our aim at MyMuse is to ease the transition that occurs when life changes in such a dramatic way. Our team of advisors would also be able to assist  through their knowledge, whether it be medical impacts, psychological or physical using external consultants when required that understand the philosophy of MyMuse.
