However, depending on the status of your condition, you may or may not qualify for a life insurance policy.
There are life insurance companies willing to provide life insurance for cancer survivors, if you have been diagnosed as your cancer being in remission for a period of time.
However, if you currently have cancer that is not in remission, it will be more difficult to find coverage.
You may want to contact a local life insurance agent with access to high risk life insurance companies that offer cancer life insurance plans. However, these policies may be expensive, and offer a limited amount of life insurance.
In addition, cancer life insurance may have a graded death benefit the first 2-3 years you are insured. That's one reason it is so important to buy life insurance while you are young and healthy, because if your health changes, the cost of life insurance and ability to qualify for coverage may change just when you need it most.
