No one wants to hear the dreaded words “you have cancer .” Certain severe conditions such as cancer, strokes, heart attack, brain tumours are all classified as Critical illnesses, and these now occur with unwanted regularity. We all know someone who has suffered at some time from one of these or the other 40 or more critical conditions. The effect on the person, their family and sometimes a business can be devastating.
Take cancer for example. Battling cancer is the one of the toughest fights a person can ever face. But when people think of cancer they don’t usually think of money. Yet for many people who get cancer, money can become one of their biggest worries.
A cancer diagnosis will often mean taking time off work which could result in a drop in income. At the same time there are a lot of costs associated with cancer, many of which people are unaware of. The cost of cancer can be very expensive. So, at a time when people should be concentrating on fighting cancer, many could find themselves worrying about money.
