Jason was the Head Training Consultant for a number of high-end banks and insurance companies in New York City. Jason was diagnosed with throat cancer and HIV. The chemotherapy treatment, in addition to HIV, resulted in severe and debilitating fatigue, neuropathy of the hands and feet, stiffness in his hands and feet and dry mouth making it difficult to talk.
Jason was receiving LTD benefits under his group disability policy he purchased years before through his employer. Unfortunately, his insurer without warning discontinued his benefits, claiming that Jason was not totally disabled and that he could return to work.
