Child Cancer - how would you cope if your child was diagnosed with cancer?

15 February is International Childhood Cancer Day...

Each year 175,000 children worldwide are diagnosed with cancer. Only 45% will be successfully treated. In New Zealand 80% will be cured.*

New Zealand’s excellent detection and treatment means that most of the 150 children diagnosed each year will do well.*

Three children are diagnosed with cancer each week in New Zealand and collectively undergo a total of 100,000 treatments and procedures annually.*

Adding your child to your Trauma Cover policy is a no-brainer.  There are two options, 1. -for a small additional premium this cover can prove to be invaluable for medical costs, rehabilitation and home help and time off from work.  OR, 2. - on some policies the trauma insurance benefit is built in to your trauma insurance cover.
