Mrs. Rodriquez

Rooftop client

Ms. Rodriquez has always worked two jobs.  In May of 2017 she was diagnosed with cancer and has been out of work since June.  At first she received short-term disability.  Her employer had to let her go because they needed the job filled, but will hire her back once she is medically cleared. She is now receiving unemployment.  However there was a gap in time between short-term disability ending and unemployment starting. Ms. Rodriquez got behind in her rent.  She is towards the end of radiation, but fluid continues to build around her right breast, which prevents her from having a part time job.  Another tumor has been found as well.  Rooftop was able to help Ms. Rodriquez get current on her rent and is in the process of helping her access other resources to assist her through her illness.
