HOW CAN YOU AFFORD TO LIVE WHILE BUSY BEATING CANCER?
Tina: Liberty client
At 34, Tina1 discovered a lump in her breast. After consulting her doctor, her worst fears were confirmed - breast cancer, Stage 3. Tina was devastated, and she rejected the first diagnosis because the doctor wasn’t very friendly. But this didn’t change the fact that she knew he was right. Tina’s cancer was an aggressive strain, so she had to start treatment immediately, including surgery and 10 cycles of chemotherapy. Her daughter cried when she first saw her with no hair. However, Tina knew she had to undergo this treatment to keep on living. She worked throughout her treatment with the support of her family and colleagues
Lifestyle Protector's Living Lifestyle really changed her life. Without it Tina believes she would have had to sell her house and possibly change her children’s school to be able to cover some of the costs. To help with the expenses related to her diagnosis, Lifestyle Protector paid out over R430 000. Based on the severity of her cancer on diagnosis, Liberty paid out 50% of the cover amount to assist in her lifestyle adjustment expenses. However, it is a possibility that cancer can reappear in the future and she may need to claim again. Tina continues to live her new life, which means she has made changes to her everyday routine, such as taking hormone replacement therapy and seeing a psychologist.
For the days when she needed a bit of extra help fetching her kids from school, she had the financial freedom to get help from a transport service provider, as well as pay for expenses like her wig and special dietary needs. She is living and remaining strong.
