Ellen’s advice to you
First of all cancer happens to everyone. I believed that after my sister had cancer there couldn’t possibly be two people in one family with cancer but I was aware of it. It really came for me like a thief in the night because I feel like a million dollars. I’ve never felt ill in my life, I can work extremely hard and I always have energy. I never once thought that I had cancer, I didn’t expect at all and it really came like a thief in the night. My experience around it all is that you should never be complacent, make sure that you go for your medical check-ups every year, make sure that you maintain your lifestyle well. I’m someone that walks, I exercise, I eat extremely well and despite everything that I did, it still came. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t live well, live as though you expect cancer but it can be a positive experience if live your life well and have things in place if it were to strike. Having a policy is just a bonus if happens to you because at the end of the day you’ll have extra expenses. I’m just glad that Platinum Life didn’t say, “Well, if you can’t afford it then there’s the door”. They insisted that I continue and I’m really thankful for that, I’m unbelievably thankful.
