Annette gives cancer a run for its money
Meet Annette. She’s a single mum of two teenage boys, and she’s been diagnosed with Endometrial Cancer. Facing a tough battle ahead, she made a Living Benefit claim on her mortgage protection plan policy.
As the sole income earner for her family, dealing with radiation therapy and being unable to work for six weeks meant there was a high chance Annette would have to sell her house.
But getting the mortgage protection plan payout while her cancer was at a low stage allowed her to focus on her recovery, without financial stress.
Here’s what Annette had to say:
“I had enough leave to cover the time I needed for surgery. But now that I’ve had to have 6 weeks’ radiation, where I can’t go to work, I didn’t have any leave left. My employer and I were trying to negotiate working from home and doing different things, but because I’m not very well, that’s actually difficult.”
“So this was like an instant weight off my shoulders when that money came through. So yes, it makes a massive difference. I was going to have to sell my house otherwise. I live from week to week, so you can’t begin to imagine the difference that’s made. The radiation makes you feel sick, tired and is full on – and I’m still running a household.”
“Not having to worry about mortgage payments is massive. The stress level has been phenomenally different. It’s just so good, so good. I’ve told lots of people how awesome it is. And I really appreciate everything that Aussie has done for me.”
