“Cancer does not have a face until it is yours or someone you know.” – Anthony Del Monte
I came across this quote somewhere on the net, and the truth in it struck me hard. Last year, two people whom I knew personally were diagnosed with cancer. Of them one person has recovered fully, but we lost the other person.
A critical illness impacts not just the patient but the entire family. The entire family undergoes an emotional setback when any member of the family suffers from a critical illness. What hits alongside with the emotional pain is the financial burden to get the critically ill member the required medical treatment which is best for him/her. And God Forbid if one is unfortunate and does not have sufficient funds they are forced to wait for the next stage of the illness or lend money from their friends and relatives.
Insurance to cover such unforeseen expenses due to critical illness becomes a must for every earning individual.
