Hi . I was just wondering if anyone has managed to get holiday insurance while taking part in clinical trials . I have been on rucaparib for 6 month as trial for ovarian cancer and seem to be responding well . Well enough that my oncologist has given me permission to go away for a week .insurance is coming in at £1500 plus . Which is nearly 5 times the cost of holiday. . TIA x

Hi there …

It’s really difficult to get insurance for holidays while going through any treatment .. it also depends where your going , you’d probly be o.k in Europe while wer still part of free treatment … but after is going to be a nightmare too ..

I went twice to the U S A and could only get cover for accidents not relating to health .. and took a big chance knowing if anything seemed to happen with the cancer, I’d get a flight strait back … but it was a huge risk I took, and thankfully here to tell the tail … 

But as an alternative what about a brake in this country .. there’s some wonderfull places you could visit, without the risk or huge amount of money to insure … just a thought .. Chrissie x
