Cancer is that big ugly word that has affected us all in some way, shape or form. Whether you’ve battled cancer personally or watched loved ones fight the good fight, cancer can take its toll. A few years ago, I lost two loved ones to cancer, my mentor and my best friend. Watching them both go through their battle was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. The saddest part was there was nothing I could do to help. I think for many of us feeling helpless against cancer can be one of the worst things.
Cancer seems to just come like a thief in the night, and many of us don’t know how we can prepare for it. When I found out about Aflac’s Cancer Protection Assurance, I knew I had to share it with everyone. Aflac’s Cancer Protection Assurance* is an insurance policy for cancer. The policy is designed to help you and your families cope better financially and emotionally during your cancer battle. Since we know that cancer affects so many families, it’s a great policy to have and prepare for a just-in-case diagnosis. It’s not something any of us wants to think about, but cancer is too prevalent not to prepare for it. Studies show 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will get cancer in their lifetimes. Although more and more Americans are living with cancer as a manageable disease, this policy provides added support (“Cancer Facts and Figures,” American Cancer Society, 2017). So, what are the benefits of Aflac’s Cancer Protection Assurance?
Aflac’s Cancer Protection Assurance Benefits
Aflac’s Cancer Protection Assurance will help provide financial footing for cancer victims and their families throughout the process. It offers end-to-end care and supports patients from detection and diagnosis, through treatment, all the way to recovery through innovative and supportive benefits. In addition, policyholders have access to CancerCare, which provides emotional support from oncology social workers, support groups and online tools. Coverage is portable, so you can take the plan with you if you change jobs or retire. Like any insurance, you hope you won’t have to use it. But it helps to have that additional peace of mind. When I watched my mentor and best friend go through their cancer battle, financial stress didn’t help. In fact, they really could have used a financial reprieve and emotional support from people who are trained. Be sure to make sure you’re going for your necessary checkups, and I hope knowing that Aflac’s Cancer Protection Assurance is an option that will help many of you.
