Did you know?

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Australian women, accounting for 27% of all cancer diagnoses in 2007
  • The number of women diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia increased from 5291 in 1982 to 12,567 in 2007
  • For women, there was an increase in relative survival after diagnosis of breast cancer between 1982-1987 and 2000-2006, five-year relative survival increased from 72.6% to 88.3% respectively

So many people are affected by breast cancer and it only takes a close friend being diagnosed for you to think about what it might mean for you. I met up with a friend over drinks the other day. She is in her early 40s and is currently going through chemotherapy after having undergone a mastectomy. Her strength, courage and resilience is inspiring.

So few women however take the opportunity to insure against cancer when they are young and healthy enough to take out the cover. I believe it is vital that people have good quality affordable insurance cover that will give them the financial peace of mind they need in the midst of a trauma.

In acknowledgement of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, from now until 31st December 2011, we are offering:
1. A no obligation insurance health check. We will quickly and painlessly diagnose any gaps in your existing insurance package and determine whether you are eligible for trauma insurance.
2. For every female trauma insurance policy that is taken out, we will donate $50 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
