A real life story about the need for Critical Illness insurance

I received the following heartbreaking email from a friend who is pleading for help:

"In June of 2013, my friend, 56, was diagnosed with stage 4 non-hodgkin's lymphoma. This fun loving, self-employed husband and father of two saw his life drastically change.

Since diagnosis, he has endured countless attempts at various chemotherapies without any success. Not so long ago, the family received devastating news that there is no cure for him in Canada.

His illness left him unable to work, and as a result he lost his business... a substantial source of family income.

The family is in dire need of URGENT financial help in order for him to be able to participate in a clinical medical trial only available from the USA. This trial is not covered by insurance and therefore his only hope is private donations. This medication is needed immediately and is VERY costly. This is his ONLY chance of survival. The family is desperate and pleading for help." 

An estimated 21 people per hour will be diagnosed with cancer in Canada in 2013.  Approximately 1 in 4 Canadians live with cancer presently (Canadian Cancer Society, 2013).  Critical illness insurance provides a one-time payment if you are diagnosed with cancer, heart attack, or stroke (it can also cover many other common and potentially financially devastating diseases depending on the policy chosen).  Is it time for you to find out about critical illness insurance for yourself?
