Wellwoman Cancer Insurance easing the financial burdens

Sponsored by Wellwoman and Digital Parents Collective

Just over nine months ago my life plan was interrupted when I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma 'IDC'- also known simply as Breast cancer.

Life shattering. Life changing.
When I read about Wellwoman I knew it was something that the women amongst my family, friends and readers would honestly benefit from. I know the harsh financial burdens that accompany a cancer diagnosis. ' Financial ' stress added to my worries.

It is not easy to talk or think about a cancer diagnosis as a mother or wife.No-one wants to consider it happening to them. EVER. This was my reality and 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with Breast cancer in their lifetime.

Wellwoman, by AIG Direct, is a newly launched cancer insurance product in Australia for women aged 18- 69yrs.

Say you are diagnosed with any of the seven cancers specific to women -
Breast cancer, Ovarian cancer, Cervical cancer, Cancer of the uterus, vagina, vulva or fallopian tubes. Wellwoman - cover pays a one-off, lump sum payment of between $25,000 and $45,000 after diagnosis.

This leaves you to focus on your treatment and recovery and things that matter most - not worrying yourself sick about the bills. The payment can be used for anything you choose e.g. a holiday, childcare or mortgage repayments.


Premiums start from $9.95 per month (Top cover is $19.95 per month).Wellwoman does not cover pre-malignant tumours, cancers currently undergoing tests or previously diagnosed. [Check their Product Disclosure for more information.]

I'll tell you more about Wellwoman later and I've got a special giveaway to launch too.
