Planning ahead for the future is something we should all be doing, regardless of our health. But it can be one of those jobs people don’t like to think about, and tends to fall to the bottom of the list. But just a bit of preparation can put your mind at ease, and help avoid unexpected costs or legal issues down the line.
Making a Will when you have cancer
It is a good idea to consider making a Will whatever your circumstances. If you have a cancer diagnosis, making sure you have a record of your wishes and plans can be even more important. Writing a Will gives you peace of mind and means you can decide what happens after you’re gone.
Having a Will can reduce stress and expense for your loved ones.
Additionally, if you don’t make a Will, the government will decide what happens to your money and assets. This could cause arguments or disputes, and even mean family members miss out.

Planning ahead for funeral costs
None of us like to think about when we’re gone, but a paid for funeral plan is way of making sure the costs and details of your funeral are organised in advance. This not only saves your loved ones the pain of doing it later, it means you can decide on what you want, and save money by paying for it now.
Planning for end of life
Coming to terms with a short prognosis or advancement of cancer can be extremely hard both for you and your loved ones. If you or a loved one wants to know more about planning for end of life, you can find a range of information and advice here.
