Published on July 10th, 2017

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a sarcoma cancer, it is likely the cancer has progressed to a critical point. Especially for those undergoing treatment, keeping a full-time job is almost impossible. Maintaining your finances from hospital bills and other support services becomes increasingly unbearable. However, if you have one of the following types of sarcoma you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits to help make your life with sarcoma more comfortable:

  • There are regional metastases
  • There are distant metastases

  • The cancer is inoperable
  • The tumor is recurrent (except for local recurrence) after initial antineoplastic therapy
  • There have been distant metastases

 

Sarcoma of the Female Genital Tract

You must be diagnosed with sarcoma of the female genital tract and prove one or more of the following:
