As a 30 year old librarian Kathy didn’t feel she had need for extensive cover at this point in her life. However, it was important to have some protection in place to put her mind at ease. In conjunction with her life cover Kathy took out a Trauma Cover Policy that would pay out $75,000 in the event of a serious illness. This was in July of 1992.
During a routine examination in October 1994 blood tests indicated the presence of leukemia. By November the disease was confirmed and she underwent treatment.
The Insurer was able to pay Kathy her Trauma Cover making a significant contribution to her continuing treatment. As of today Kathy is doing well although not completely rid of the leukemia. We were very pleased to be able to assist in her time of need.
