Cancer is not pleasant to think about, but given that it's something that nearly 40% of adults will have to deal with at some point, it pays off to prepare. The problem is: how do you prepare for something that's so unpredictable? Even a robust emergency savings account wouldn't be sufficient to cover a cancer diagnosis. Health insurance helps, but oftentimes even that isn't enough to save you from sailing into dire financial straits.
American men and women have a 39.6 percent chance of developing Cancer at some point in their lifetime. Given how prevalent Cancer is, it's likely that your employees have had a loved one go through Cancer and understand the financial burden that this terrible disease brings. In addition to rising treatment costs, most employees facing Cancer have many other expenses to consider as well.
