A major critical illness like Cancer, Heart attack or Stroke can take a long time for recovery, mostly leading to prolonged loss of income.
During this period of diagnosis and recovery, usual living expenses continue, while additional medical expenses pile up.
Loss of income in this scenario can be devastating and can cause a lot of trauma for you and your family.
Alarming Critical Illness Statistics
- UAE patients ‘as young as 28’ having heart attacks - The National - April 12, 2017
- The average age of an incidence of stroke is 45 in UAE, about 20 years earlier than the worldwide average of 65 - Gulf News - May 1, 2016
- In the UAE, 18 to 20 per cent of the population is obese, and 20 per cent of the population are diabetic - Gulfnews-August 11, 2016
2011 UAE health statistics show that 38 % of the deaths in UAE are caused by Cardiovascular diseases. Followed by External causes like accident, suicide and injury at 17% and Cancer-related Deaths at 16 %.
While these statistics are alarming, they fail to indicate the fate of the survivors of these dreadful diseases.
They also fail to highlight the financial struggle endured by the survivors.
Most of us fail to consider the financial implications of surviving a major illness like a Heart attack or Cancer…
Advancements in the medical profession have resulted in vast improvements in survival rates following critical illnesses.
While this progress is much appreciated, it has resulted in millions of previously self-sufficient individuals struggling to meet their financial commitments, denting their confidence and crashing their dreams.
Is there a solution to this? yes, there is!
