He Learned The Hard Way What Not Having CI Insurance Means
To The Editor:
The following is my story about why critical illness insurance is the best buy in todays marketplace.
The life insurance industry offers many products that respond to the diverse requirements of individuals and their families. But of all the types of coverage available today, critical illness insurance is surely the best. It could literally save your life!
I have worked in the insurance business for over 40 years and have never seen such a wonderful product. I am proud to be able to offer it to my clients. Critical illness insurance pays your full death benefits simply upon diagnosis of cancer, stroke, heart attack, paralysis, loss of limbs or sight and renal failure. You do not have to die to win! I learned the hard way what not having such protection could mean to a family.
For more than 50 years I have been a devoted husband. I have three children and 11 grandchildren. My wife Dolores and I were enjoying the pleasant peace that comes after the challenges of parenthood. Life was good and our future seemed secure. All our children had established their own families and we were returning to our “childhood sweetheart” days.
At the height of this happiness, I went for my regularly scheduled physical and left the doctors office with a diagnosis of cancer. My life as I knew it was over. The prospect of a relaxing retirement with the woman I love was replaced by debilitating surgery and a long, painful recovery.
After a lifetime in this business, I finally found out what life insurance coverage is all about.
My medical expenses were enormous while my business continued to decline. Dolores was by my side the whole time. Fortunately, my surgery was successful. Recuperating at home, I was discovering new hope and just being thankful my life was spared. Just as our life was returning to a manageable state, our peace was again shattered when Dolores had a severe stroke.
