Impact on one’s financial health

• The disease not only affects an individual’s health – both physically and mentally, but also puts a heavy strain on the financial health of his family.

• The diagnosis directly hits his earning capacity. He may have to take leave or quit his job altogether or even switch to a job which is less demanding and offers less pay.

• The expensive treatment may mean dipping into his savings. Moreover, all the unrealised future goals, such as his children’s education and marriage, may get derailed in the process if they are self-funded.
