In a post yesterday I mentioned that the course of treatment for breast cancer that my mother is just completing included six weeks of radiation therapy. My dad forwarded an article to me today from the clinic where she is being treated that talks about a more intensive and compacted radiation therapy used for patients when the cancer is a low grade, insitu, type of cancer that hasn’t spread.

From a life insurance standpoint it would bring the same result, a likely standard rate after one year.

Bottom line. Again, with detection and treatment options expanding all the time, survival and insurance rates will continue to improve. That and I’ve got my dad working for me for free. What a guy!
