Critical Illness – Did You Know…?

Hi All

Did you know?… According to the Australian Cancer Council (2014):

  • An estimated 128,000 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Australia in 2014
  • One in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85
  • Around 66% of cancer patients will survive more than five years after diagnosis
  • The survival rate for many common cancers has increased by 30% in the past two decades.

With this in mind, it is important to point out that TAL’s Accelerated Protection Critical Illness Premier offering has comprehensive cover for all of these conditions in their early stages.
