Imagine: Greg, a 38 year-old, suffered
a heart attack.
His doctor tells him that achieving a complete recovery after
such a serious illness will require more than just throwing away
his cigarettes. It will take time - maybe six to eight months - to
slowly and methodically rebuild his heart muscle. But worse: his
doctor tells him his present job as a sales manager will be too
stressful, and if he returns to that job, he could have another
heart attack. His doctor suggests retraining.
Greg can think of nothing but the time he will need for
retraining. Luckily for Greg, his company will let him borrow money
from his profit-sharing program, so he won't have to touch his
savings. He'll use this money to support his family during the long
and difficult transition period. Regrettably, most of us wouldn't
have that kind of "windfall" to turn to if we were
diagnosed with Cancer, Heart Attack or Stroke.
Where would you turn if this happened
