Back in 2006 when we signed up with Family Heritage I was looking at this monthly payment as a type of savings account we would get back at age 65. I really didn’t think that I would get cancer. After all, I go to the doctor annually for checkups. Then, I was diagnosed with Stage III Breast Cancer, I had no idea what I was facing. After several surgeries, numerous doctor visits and trips to Corpus Christi for lab work, chemo treatments and weeks of daily radiation, thankfully I have been told that I am in remission. I still have 5 years of doctor visits, lab work and chemo medication, but it is nothing compared to what I have been through.
With the cost of gasoline over $3.00 a gallon, eating out on all those trips and health insurance co-pays, we were dwindling what money we were saving for our retirement. I even applied with several organizations just for gas money. I was denied by all. I cannot tell you how fortunate enough we were to have Family Heritage Insurance. They saved us from a lot of our financial worries.
I can still remember thinking that I would never get cancer. Not so anyomore. After meeting all the patients, it has shown me that it can happen to anyone.
