While you have to feel sorry for the lady having cancer and all but why is an employer to be held responsible to allow you benefits in a form others don't get. Plus she was part time it sounds like so seniority issues will come here that maybe she isn't privy to. Plus many places will drop you off the insurance program after not working just 30 days. This whole thing just does not ring true here.

She still is, or was, eligible for COBRA coverage. It's expensive, but if you have cancer it's worth the money.

COBRA is aptly named, 'cause it really sinks it's fangs into ya.
