Living with Life Insurance

Experiencing the lose of a parent is hard at any age. I never thought I would lose my mother at the age of 58. She was young and had so many years ahead of her. The unexpected happened when she was diagnosed with glioblastomia. It's an extremely fast growing brain cancer.

From the time of her diagnosis to her death was only 18 months. For years my sister and I implored our parents to get medical and life insurance. They didn't. By the time Mom was diagnosed, it was too late.

They had to rely of the generosity of family to cover the funeral expenses. Their medical debt was astronomical.

For as long as I have been married, my husband and I have had life and medical insurance. It is a non-negotiable. We don't want to burden anyone else with our expenses. It's the grown-up thing to do. It's the responsible thing to do.

My mother thought she had many more years on this earth, and her planning reflected her beliefs. Please don't make the same mistake as my parents. Get life insurance. Get medical insurance. They are necessary evils.

You never know what the future holds. Hopefully you will not have to use your life insurance for a very long time. Just in case you do, you will have the peace of mind that it is there.
