Men’s Health Checklist…and a little about moustaches

Have you heard the one about the two guys that walked into a bar in Melbourne, Australia? No, not that one! This one is about the Movember Movement; the movement that brought an international light on prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. The movement started in 2003, by two men named Travis Garone and Luke Slattery over a beer discussing ways to bring the moustache back in fashion.

A celebration of strength for those who fight

In our blog earlier this month, Erica Flament shared the story of her courageous battle against breast cancer. In it, she noted that “Cancer carries this big stigma of being sick, scary and sad,” a sentiment that is true in many cases. But, right afterwards, Erica also noted that, “It can be true, but it’s all in the lens in which you choose to view it.” We found that message inspiring and, in that spirit, wanted to encourage others to remember that Breast Cancer Awareness Month isn’t just to bring awareness about breast cancer prevention, or the devastation caused by breast cancer. It’s not served as a reminder for those of you who have been through it—even though it may feel like it. It can be a celebration of the strength. It’s all in the lens in which you choose to view it.

Life Insurance Awareness Month – Living benefits

Purchasing life insurance means making a promise to loved ones that when you’re not around, you’ll still be able to support them. This is undeniably true, but many people only see life insurance in this light and, thus, tend to see it as a one-trick pony. While protecting your family after you’re gone is undeniably a key feature of what life insurance provides, it’s also selling it short. One of the many great things about life insurance is that policies can provide other benefits throughout the course of a policyholder’s life, sometimes referred to as “living benefits”.

Life Insurance Awareness Month – What does a promise look like?

Purchasing life insurance, in many ways, is like making a promise. It’s a promise to look after your family when you’re no longer around. It’s a promise made for a day in the future but, when that time comes, what does the fulfillment of that promise look like? The McNeely family was generous enough to share their story about what it’s like to have the security of a life insurance policy in challenging times.
