Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer affecting one in eight Australian women each year. With only an 89% survival rate within five years of diagnosis, it is very likely that someone you know will be or has been affected by the illness*.
We can only imagine how traumatic it would be to be diagnosed with breast cancer or any other type of serious illness. Whilst, most of us don’t like thinking about the possibility of this happening doesn’t mean it won’t happen. As good as Medicare and private health insurance can be, in the event of a serious illness diagnosis, there’ll be gap expenses for treatment, rehabilitation and recovery. And then there’s the possibility of having to change your lifestyle or adjust to living with an acquired disability.
Having trauma insurance will ease some of the stress. Trauma insurance will pay you a lump sum if you suffer a serious medical illness or critical injury**. The payment can be used for any purpose you see fit: to pay out of pocket expenses, for modifications to your home, for a prosthesis, or simply ease financial worries at a time of great personal and family stress.
