It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Breast CancerMost of us have been touched by having someone we love be diagnosed with, battle or suffer with cancer.  Most recently, a lifelong girlfriend of mine passed away after a 7 year fight with breast cancer, at the age of 44.

Thankfully, I’d set her up with a Trauma Policy some years before and the lump sum financial assistance she received meant she had treatment options and could explore the avenues of her choice.  Although her only lament was, that she wished she’d gotten more.

Trauma Insurance provides cover for many individual events (up to 50 with some providers) which include breast cancer, and pays a lump sum regardless of whether you’re prevented from working or not. It can provide invaluable financial support, security, and importantly options for treatment, care and recovery.

Women have unique needs. As a result, some insurers provide financial protection for health conditions of particular concern to women.  Almost 81% of female Trauma claims with CommInsure are for cancer, making it undoubtedly the leading cause for claims.
