Jade Goody: raising awareness
Jade Goody, made famous after appearing in the reality show Big Brother, was diagnosed with ‘advanced and life-threatening’ cervical cancer in August 2008 at just 28 years old. Jade’s well documented fight against cervical cancer helped to fuel a huge surge in UK women demanding cervical screenings – reversing a decade-long decline. Sadly though, she lost her battle with cancer in March 2009, leaving behind her husband and two children.
Unfortunately Cancer is a very real concern for so many people – Cancer Research UK recently reported that a devastating 1 in 3 people are directly affected by cancer, with over 5,000 people diagnosed every week.
Given these figures, it’s important to plan for the future. Private Health Insurance puts your mind at rest in the knowledge that, should you need it, not only will your medical bills be taken care of, but you’ll also have the access the NHS can’t always offer to such things as:
- rapid examination, diagnosis and treatments
- new drugs and advanced treatments, even not yet widely available
- specialist treatment units for breast, bowel and gynaecological cancers
- the UK's leading specialist consultants
- extensive cover for eligible heart and cancer conditions
