Did you know there is such a thing as supplemental Cancer insurance?
I just found out about it yesterday on Facebook from an acquaintance who had purchased it for her mother.
I had no idea something like this existed!
Here’s what I know….I am not eligible because I have already been diagnosed with cancer. That makes sense. Bummer. But I get it. So to qualify, you can’t have cancer. Got it!
Now that we’ve cleared that up, here’s what I found out. It’s supplemental insurance, which means it is in addition to your medical insurance. Depending on the plan you choose, it can help with co-payments, transportation fees, prescriptions, groceries, mortgage payments…basically things that you might need help with as you are fighting cancer….things that medical insurance doesn’t cover. Each plan seems to cover different things and pay out different ways.
Oh how I wish I knew about this 6 years ago!
If I have never heard about it, I’m guessing that it might be new to some of you as well, so I wanted to share the news. Do with it what you want. It’s one of those things you pay for, hoping you never need it. But if you need it, you are very thankful you invested in it.
In other news….Thank you for all the birthday wishes, emails, texts, calls, Facebook messages, cards, gift cards, flowers and gifts. I felt very loved and spoiled. The girls and Tom did everything they could to make my birthday special and it was a lovely, relaxing day. I’m super excited about my two new Baggallini purses/bags. 🙂 If I have to take stuff with me to do at the infusion center, it might as well be in something new and cute!
Unfortunately, around 2 pm yesterday on my birthday, my body gave me the gift of extreme fatigue, which totally changed our fun plans for my birthday evening. Instead of floating on the lake, I rested in bed. It was still a nice day, just different than what I had planned. The fatigue is still here this morning (it’s 11:23 am as I’m writing this) and I’ve been in bed all morning and had to cancel a birthday lunch with a friend. 🙁 Not all days will be fabulous.
Still so much to be thankful for….
So good to see your attitude. Yes there is still so much to be thankful for. May you get that chance to float on the lake soon.

You are a courageous cancer soldier! You also will be a survivor because of your strength and beautiful trusting faith! Glad to hear that your birthday was a happy one. A little glitch in the celebration but the day was built on love, joy and wonderful memories. So glad God has blessed you with a supportive loving family that are in this battle with you and will be right along side of you whatever the circumstances. We all know you endure a lot of physical pain and emotional pain but hopefully if you can rest in knowing you are ALWAYS surrounded by love and prayer, you will win each battle. God bless you! HE IS YOUR ROCK!!!
