I was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia in March.
I’ve just remortgaged and like any sensible person I thought I should get life insurance given that I have three small children and I work full time.
I went through Tom and got a stonewall no, in that no insurers will offer to cover me.
I’m 42 and otherwise fit and well. Consider myself to be lucky in that respect.
Obviously I’m a bit miffed that they seem to think I’m too ill for them even though the specialists say it shouldn’t affect my lifespan.
But in a practical sense it’s a bummer because I can’t offer my family a bit of security.
Anyone got any experience of this, or know any solutions or more flexible insurers?
