  • Not Entirely Dead

  • Scale the elephant in the room, and learn about the community of survivors looking to re-enter the workforce.

    The hard work of defeating cancer is often seen as an unfavorable career gap. But fighting cancer is one of the toughest jobs an individual will ever have and it deserves a place on any resume. The competencies cancer survivors cultivate through adversity are Super-Abilities, not disabilities or liabilities, as current workplace biases might suggest. Grit, determination, resilience, ownership, dedication, empathy: these are the important skills companies look for in prospective hires.

    Since Eason Yang has had the privilege of being Not Entirely Dead, they have created an initiative to drive a narrative of hope and possibilities. Named for “No Evidence of Disease” (a medical term) and “Not Entirely Dead” (an inside joke for cancer patients), NED is a social enterprise championing the 600,000+ young adult cancer survivors (ages 19–39) in the U.S. who are ready to work again.
