We've been researching the life insurance thing for about 2 weeks now. I had to submit my husband's path report and we were told all companies declined to insure at this time. Mutual of Omaha offered a $25,000 whole life policy for $119/month but I believe there are some restrictions.

DH was 3b and ended treatment in January of 2015 so he's just about at 5 years. That made no difference to the underwriters. We may have to give it a few more years.
Blaise (DH) dx 3/31/14 (age 49)
Stage IIIb Rectal - 4 lymphs involved
Xeloda and Rad 5/5/2014
Surgery 7/29/14 Illeostomy Placed
FolFox 9/11/2014 x 9 treatments
Reversal 1/27/15
NED 9/29/2015
