Hi everyone, we are back and talking about blood cancer. In this episode Matt explains how the different blood cancers affect the body, which has really helped me to visualise what happens when they develop.

The key takeaways:

  • There are 250,000 living with blood cancer in the UK.
  • There are different types of blood cancer: leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN).
  • A case study of life insurance for someone living with CLL phenotypes.

We also have a  brief discussion of someone’s right to forget that they have had cancer, in France and Belgium. This is something that is not yet done in the UK, it is an interesting concept, it would open up the options to a lot of people to get insurance and we discuss why that would be a good thing, and also the knock-on effects it would have across the market.

Next time I am going to be doing an Inbetweenysode. There has been a lot of chatter recently about advisers taking fees or a commission for their work. I am going to do a shortish episode about this, focusing upon explaining both routes.
