Trauma Insurance and The Big C

Every day there are 57 new cancer cases registered and 23 deaths from Cancer.

1 in 6 men will get Cancer

1 in 8 women.

There are some new drugs available that are showing great success in trials, which unfortunately are unavailable through the NZ Public health system.

The new drugs cost $140,000 for 4 doses. Fine if you have that amount of cash available to spend. 

If you don’t have that kind of cash lying around, or would rather spend that on something else, and you want to get access to the best cancer treatments available so that you can get back to your life, then you need Trauma insurance.

This will pay you a lump sum when you are diagnosed with Cancer, Heart Attack, Major Neurological disorders, Paralysis or loss of functionality.

You can use the money to get treatment, take care of ongoing household bills while you seek treatment and (hopefully) recover.

Costs of this treatment?

Cancer has been a subject that has come up a lot in our house over the last few weeks. My wife had a good friend and mentor pass away last week due to bowel cancer. He was 64 years old. He was fit and well at our wedding only 4 years ago, and he was probably looking forward to retiring and living a lot longer.

Give yourself the best chance of a long life: get Trauma insurance.
