AFLAC Truly a Life Saver!
NORFOLK -- Our bright, energetic, handsome son graduated from college as a Mechanical Engineer at only 22 and began interview with numerous companies. He noticed when he would put on a tie, a small lump in his neck. The doctors thought it was a clogged lymphnode, and a round of antibiotics would take care of it. In the meantime, he landed a fantastic engineering position with a Fortune 500 company, rented a beautiful apartment, bought an expensive new car. Once settled into his new life..he opted to have that bothersome lump removed. There are no words to explain the feelings you go through when the news of Cancer is delivered, especially when the diagnosis is your child's. It was aggressive, and after a year of numerous surgeries and treatments, it had moved to the vocal cords, then to the lympnodes, then tumors appeared in the neck, and the cancer was spreading into his shoulder. We were losing the fight, we were losing our son. AFLAC has benefits that allows their policyholders to be seen at a major Cancer Center, and pays for experimental treatments. We chose DUKE Cancer Center, and AFLAC was with us the whole way. They paid $300 for EVERY single treatment, they paid $300 for EVERY day in hospital, they paid thousands towards surgeries, they paid for 1 pill that cost over $5,000, they paid the co pays, they paid the deductibles, they even paid for our hotel room while we were away from home.
THEY PAID US OVER $30,000 THOUSAND DOLLARS!!! They allowed us to be seen at one of the best hospitals, by one of the best surgeons, and receive the best treatment in the US that has allowed us to have our son here today...Cancer free after a 2 year fight for life. The money also paid for that apartment, and new expensive car...because those bills come monthly regardless of your ability to pay. AFLAC is truly a Life Saver!
