The Real Life Story of Anne Gongos

John’s time was suddenly cut short. One day, he was having severe stomach pains. He asked his wife, Anne, to get him to an emergency room. At the hospital, he was diagnosed with 4th-stage melanoma. He died two weeks later, just shy of his 52nd birthday.

John’s death was sudden and unexpected, but the life insurance policy he put in place allowed Anne to have her shares in the business bought out by the other partners.


The proceeds from the death benefit allowed her to stay in her home and not have to uproot her three kids. “Life insurance was truly John’s final gift to us,” Anne says.

Scott's running earned him the title of the 1982 NCAA Track and Field All-American, a spot in the 1984 Olympic Trials, and the record for the Men’s Outdoor 800-Meter at Ohio State University, which he still holds to this day. 

That’s why it came as such a surprise that, at just 47 years old, Scott was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

Fortunately, he and his family were able to maintain their lifestyle, thanks to the fact that Scott had taken out a disability insurance policy years earlier.

The Real Life Story of Tonia Wachtel

Tonia's husband Don suffered a inoperable brain tumor. Don was able to take-out 50% of his life insurance policy called "Living Benefits", an accelerated death benefit. The funds was used while he was still alive for medical expenses and pay for day-to-day living expenses.


Tonia, was able to take a leave of absence from her job so she could care for Don at home. It was there that Don died at age 47, just 19 months after being diagnosed.

The remaining death benefit helped Tonia pay for the funeral and to stay at home with her two daughters for several months as they grieved. “Without life insurance, I would have had to go back to work immediately, get a second job, and we surely would have lost our home,” says Tonia.
