Apart from dealing with the stress of her condition, she also has to ensure that Samantha is cared for, the bills are paid and she can afford to take time off to recuperate after her surgery. Thanks to her foresight and the advice of her financial planner, Anne had in place sufficient income protection cover and trauma cover after her divorce. With the trauma payout she was able to fly her mother form Canada to be with her and Samantha. Her monthly benefit from her income plan means she can continue to pay her mortgage and bills.
