Here’s Neil’s story…
I have been a British Friendly member for around about 4 years. Unfortunately, around a year and a half ago, I became unwell, had pains in my belly. I consulted my GP about this pain who recommended that I went for a colonoscopy.
Based on the results of the colonoscopy Neil was diagnosed with stage 2 Bowel Cancer. He then had surgery to treat the cancer
Luckily, Neil had the right policy in place and a discretionary payment was paid to him. In addition to the weekly benefit he received during his claim, Neil received £1,292.32 as a Recovery Support Benefit payment and received help getting back into work.
