The phrase “Hope for the best, but plan for the worst” is familiar to most people. However, almost everyone stops at just hoping for the best. Rarely is there a plan in place in case the worst happens. They think it just can’t happen to them. The fact is, according to the American Cancer Society, 1-in-2 men will develop cancer and 1-in-3 women will develop cancer. Chances are you know someone who has been affected directly by cancer. You also know the toll it takes on the family, physically , emotionally, and financially.
Obviously, the worst is more common than most people think. With that said you need the added protection of the Cancer plan. While you can’t always predict the future, you can be financially better prepared for the diagnosis of cancer. The average cost of cancer treatment for a 3 month period will cost you about $35000, and 40% of that will come out of your pocket! That means $14000 will come out of your pocket. The average individual in America does not even have $500 saved in a bank account, which means an individual is living paycheck to paycheck. Aflac is here to help you and your family better cope financially and emotionally.
