“Hey! My name is Julia. I'm 29. I'd say that I'm someone who's pretty passionate and I love life. I'm finishing my Master's degree in foreign languages, I travel, I love doing volunteer work—I just try to live my life to the fullest.

My friend Nadine was diagnosed with uterine cancer a couple of months ago and it totally changed her life. She's had to undergo surgery, she's had to undergo chemotherapy, radiation. She's still not done. She had to move back in with her parents because she wasn't able to work anymore and support herself financially.

In a way, Nadine is lucky to be able to count on her family like that. It's not all parents who can help out in that way, especially when they're retired. Thankfully her chances of making a complete recovery are excellent, but it still made me think. If it happened to me, I'd want to be able to focus completely on getting better and providing myself with the best care possible, without having to worry about money. So, I got insured.”
