Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you. You’re a fighter! You’re a survivor!

So, hang out with Howard Weissman, AccuQuote’s Medical Underwriting Expert, for a couple minutes and learn more about how you might be able to get life insurance – even if you’ve had or are currently being treated for breast cancer.

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosed in women in the U.S., after skin cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic. Because of early detection and improved cancer research, millions of women are surviving breast cancer. Thanks, in part, to the American Medical Association’s recommendation that health insurance plans cover mammography screenings for women after age 40.

The good news is that some women can get life insurance – even if they’ve had breast cancer. For example, the most common type of non-invasive breast cancer is Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS), and this form is non-life-threatening, but it can develop into a deadlier form later on. But it is not uncommon for women with DCIS to qualify for life insurance.

Everyone who has loved ones depending on them financially needs life insurance. It’s a great, affordable way to help safeguard your family’s financial future when you’re no longer there to provide.
