National Bank Insurance donates $42,000 to the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation

Montreal, 14 August 2009 - 

National Bank Insurance recently had the honour of presenting the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation with a cheque for $42,000. This donation was made possible through its clients with Truly Me insurance coverage, which protects women if they are diagnosed with the seven most common types of female cancer.

For each Truly Me policy issued, National Bank Insurance donates $10 to the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation. Truly Me ensures that women have the financial support they need so they can focus all their energies on treatment and recovery.

National Bank Insurance also undertakes to refund the premiums paid if the insured has not made any claims after 20 years of continuous coverage or when she turns 70. Clients who have never been diagnosed with cancer are guaranteed to be accepted, even if they have a family history of cancer. Clients interested in enrolling in the Truly Me Insurance Plan can obtain coverage for up to $50,000.

National Bank Insurance is the only financial institution in Quebec to offer such a product to women. For more information or to order your Truly Me Insurance Plan information kit, visit www.nbc.ca/trulyme
