Did you know that each year in Canada some 75,000 people suffer from heart attacks* and 50,000 from strokes*? Cancer is also a reality that two Canadians in five will face in their lifetimes*. Despite these high numbers, most people who suffer a serious illness recover (82% survive a first heart attack, 75% a stroke and 55% cancer*).
Being diagnosed with a serious illness is very disturbing. Despite the encouraging statistics, the pain, treatment and limits imposed by the disease are difficult and change one’s life. When diagnosed with a serious illness, in addition to managing your emotions, you also have to think about health care, your recovery, unavoidable expenses and the loss of income that comes with such illnesses. With Blue Cross’s Serious Illness insurance, you can put aside your financial worries and concentrate on the essentials -- your health.
