Troy, MI – May 1, 2023 – ASE has partnered with Wheelhouse to bring CancerAlly, a cancer benefits program, to ASE member employers. The CancerAlly program partners with a cancer survivor’s HR department to determine a plan that benefits both the employer and employee – resulting in increased retention and productivity during and after cancer treatment.

With over eighteen million people affected by cancer in the U.S., roughly eight million are of working age. This number is only expected to grow. A cancer diagnosis changes who a person is, what they value, and how they want to spend their time. Connecting CancerAlly to a workforce shows that an employer takes proactive steps to reduce the financial, physical, and mental burden of cancer.

“ASE is very pleased to welcome Wheelhouse as our newest partner. They will bring much value to our members in their effort to provide care and compassion to employees going through what is likely a life-altering battle,” stated ASE President & CEO Mary E. Corrado.

Employee turnover is extremely expensive, sometimes double the position’s salary, so the retention of these employees is crucial to employers who want an engaged workforce for employees returning to work after cancer.

“We are extremely excited to work with the over 700 employer groups in the state of Michigan to provide these essential cancer benefits,” says Ben Frank, CEO of Wheelhouse. “This partnership will expand access to the crucial support cancer survivors need to thrive in the workplace.”
