Sorry to hear you wasn't able to get a quote. You do wonder sometimes just who is deciding how much crap to chuck at one person.....My tumour was grade 2 stage 3 6.5cm in size but i was 50 and ER+8 PR+8 so ideal candidate for Tamoxifen now Letrazole. It really does have a massive negative impact on your body. I am a 55 year old in an 80 year old body. I am very high maintenance, wrinkles need ironing out and i need Old Lady moisturizer......Hope you're doing OK at the moment and you are able to get this curent concern sorted.
Take Care Butterfly xx
Not posted for a while. I've just had a bit of a rant myself.
I am 6 yrs post diagnosis. My life insurance went up x 3 following diagnosis, i had paid it for 30 yrs plus....
We bought a house 2 years ago and despite having gone back to work, decent job with a pension including twice my salary if death in service..... I still could not have my salary taken into consideration or get any insurance.
I did at the time take out critcal illness for my Husband and an additional life policy.
The Broker i spoke with was only young but very knowledgeable and said i should stick with Scottish Widdows who had tripled my contributions. (his exact words were 'you're stuffed') He did say the Insurance companies consider Tamoxifen & Letrazole as ongoing treatment and won't even consider cover. He did say it had previously been 5 years but very recent research had indicated 10 years on Tamoxifen / Letrazole. This was in 2013 and was only just filtering through so i did think he knew his stuff...
He said come back after all treatment finished...
I have managed to get travel insurance tho' without problems. Hope you are well and remain so.

Hi, I don't really have any advice for you but didn't want to read and run, I've not come across anyone asking this before it's generally travel insurance that gets discussed but I guess others must have come up against the same.
It is very unfair as so many things associated with BC are, we didn't ask for any of this yet it's something that follows us around and we can't quite shake it off!
I guess the further away from diagnosis you get the higher your chances of getting life insurance will be, fingers crossed this current application comes up trumps for you and on a more important note good to see you are a few years on and doing well Xx Jo
