Life Insurance: Taking Care of Those Who Are Left Behind
Richard Baker took care of himself. He and his wife, Dee, both worked out regularly — and had even run some marathons. They were vegetarians, non-smokers and only had a rare drink on special occasions.
In his mid-50s, Richard felt and looked healthy right up until the moment when doctors discovered a cancerous football-sized tumor that had stealthily grown on his kidney.
“I am a biology professor, so I don’t sugarcoat things,” Dee said. “The minute I heard the diagnosis, I knew he was a dead man walking.”
Amid the crushing news was one silver lining. The Bakers were well prepared for the unexpected with life insurance from Erie Family Life.
