    Wife's Cancer Costs Husband His Job - Boston News Story - WCVB Boston

    He claims he was told on the they were thinking about laying him off then a week later got termination papers.

    I doubt the truthfulness of the story

    Very reason why insurance and a job should have never been married to each other, Get health insurance to cover the catastrophic stuff with as high a deductible as you can personally deal with while your your and healthy and pay cash for the rest.

    "When I told my boss, she said 'We were thinking about laying you off.' I thought, 'You can't do that,'" Sorabella told WCVB.

    This is the ONLY thing in the article close to what you claim

    You may be right, his story changed with every telling.

    But so what? I claimed I doubt the truthfulness and I still do

    I'm not seeing where he lost his job because his wife had cancer. I'm reading he lost his job because he told his boss he would be there less or not at all during normal business hours.

    My brother ended up losing his job due to illness; over the course of two years he missed too much work. He wasn't there to do the job so they let him go and hired someone who was able to be there and do the job.
