If you’ve been looking for a female cancer policy, you will know that many South African women fail to take their health as seriously as they should. Regular check-ups and tests are essential!
October is breast cancer awareness month and there’s a great deal that you can do to provide support and create awareness for those suffering with the disease. When you participate in breast cancer awareness initiatives and events that are sure to be coming up, you will be doing your bit to help provide mammograms, education and a wealth of support services to woman who are in need.
- Donate to a local breast cancer association. CANSA and Pink Drive are well known associations and fundraisers.
- Host a fundraising event for women in need.
- Ensure that you go for a mammogram, and in support of those with breast cancer, encourage other women in your life to do the same.
- Register for one of the Pink Drive events in your area. They are hosted from September to November and include big walks, runs and similar activities.
As part of cancer awareness, you can also ensure that you encourage the women in your life to be responsible about their healthcare. Be aware that not all medical aid policies are able to fully cover your medical care and often this means that women who require treatment for breast cancer cannot afford it because of the shortfall of their medical aid cover. To avoid running into problems, it’s best to acquire gap cover or a dedicated Femme Cover or female cancer insurance that specifically caters to women with breast cancer and can cover some or all of the costs involved.
Spread the word! Breast cancer can be treated – don’t leave it too late!

If you’re looking for insurance cover that safeguards you against unexpected expenses that can crop up when you’re diagnosed with breast cancer, compare available packages carefully. Consult with an intermediary such as a broker for advice. Be responsible when it comes to your healthcare. It’s not only about being aware, but also about making certain lifestyle changes that promote better health and fight off cancer or help you cope with the symptoms. Most insurance cover options specifically for women require registrations before the age of 65 years of age. Don’t leave it until it’s too late. Get involved this cancer awareness month and make a difference to your life and to other’s around you.
