Tim and Nora
Tim and Nora are both physical therapists with Tim working at Kaiser while Nora works at a small physical therapy practice in San Francisco.
Nora is diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer and can't work due to the surgery to remove the ovary and subsequent chemotherapy. Their savings are shrinking due to the loss of Nora's income, her medical bills, and child care for the kids.
Tim and Nora decide to accelerate the benefits of Nora's life insurance policy. She accelerates the full $300,000 death benefits and receives a check for $210,000 in about three weeks. Receiving the $210,000 helped Tim and Nora get through a very difficult time in their life and relieved the financial pressure of Nora returning to work prematurely.
Nora is recovering well and is getting stronger everyday. She hopes to return back to work when she has her strength back and her doctors approve.
