This month, go beyond the pink ribbons and learn the facts. While we’re all used to seeing pink in October, few of us may be aware that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. And this year, an estimated 42,000 women could die from this disease in the U.S. alone.
At Low Cost Life Insurance, we want to bring awareness to this problem. We also want to encourage everyone to have a plan!
Have a Plan to Detect Breast Cancer in its Early Stages
We encourage women to speak to their doctors about breast cancer screening, and schedule regular mammograms.
If it is detected in its early stages, breast cancer does not have to be a death sentence! In fact, over 60% of breast cancer cases are diagnosed when they’re still a small, localized problem, and the 5-year survival rate of these early-stage detections is over 95%! This should give us all encouragement that early detection and early treatment works.
There are over 3.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the U.S. today. If you’ve been recently diagnosed, there is hope.
Have a Plan to Insure Your Family’s Future
At Low Cost Life Insurance, we are troubled by another statistic: Studies show that an alarming number of women are underinsured. Not only that, but 40% of married mothers and nearly 60% of unmarried mothers have no life insurance at all!
The possibility of developing future health issues isn’t the only reason to buy a life insurance policy now. If you have family members who financially depend on you, it’s important to purchase life insurance sooner rather than later.
Ask yourself the following question: “If I die today and have no life insurance in force, does this create a financial hardship for anyone left behind?” If the answer to this question is “yes,” we can help.
With Low Cost Life Insurance, it’s Simple to Plan for Your Future
We can help you calculate the amount of life insurance coverage you need, the length of time you need your life insurance protection, and how past health issues may impact qualification for life insurance. If you have gone through treatment for breast cancer, you may still be eligible for coverage. We will work with you to select the individual plan that works best for your family.
The three things we look for in identifying the best policy for you are as follows:
- Lowest possible price.
- Policies underwritten by a financially solvent insurance company.
- The underwriting profile. Based on your individual underwriting profile and prior health history, we select the company/product we expect to have the lowest cost.
