Laurel worked for a large national mail-delivery pharmacy conglomerate as a pharmacist. Laurel worked at home filling and reviewing hundreds of thousands of prescription orders. Two decades earlier, Laurel was diagnosed with muscular cancer of the shoulder and had to have the muscle removed in order to continue arm function. Unfortunately, complications included chronic pain, frozen shoulder, and neuropathy. One day, Laurel lost complete use of her shoulder which forced Laurel to stop working all together.
