JEFF: LONG BEACH WOMAN IS IN THE FIGHT OF HER LIFE SHE A STAGE 4K CANCER. PAT: THEY NEEDED HELP ON “2 ON YOUR SIDE”. KRISTINE LAZAR HE IS HERE WITH MORE. IT. I’VE COVERED THOUSANDS OF STORIES IN MY CAREER AND EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE IT REALLY GETS TO ME AND I TAKE IT HOME AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM. THEY ARE AN AMAZING COUPLE. THEY WERE SET TO TAKE A CARIBBEAN CRUISE THIS PAST MARCH TO CELEBRATE THEIR 40th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY BUT THEY HAD TO CANCEL AFTER LEARNING HER CANCER HAD SPREAD. NOW THEY ARE OUT THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS DESPITE HAVING PURCHASED TRAVEL INSURANCE. FOR 40 YEARS TOM SWANSON HAS BEEN BY THE SIDE OF HIS WIFE CONNIE. AND SHE NEEDS HIM NOW MORE THAN EVER. WITH A LIMITED TIME LEFT THE COUPLE DECIDED TO LIVE THE BEST LIFE POSSIBLE BY TRAVELING AROUND THE WORLD. THIS WAS THEM ANNA CRUZ TO CUBA LAST FALL. WHAT IS TRAVELING ME TO CONNIE? C LIFE. IT’S SOMETHING I CAN DO AND THERE’S SOME NOT A LOT OF STUFF I CAN DO. A COUPLE BOOKED A 10 DAY CRUISE TO THE CARIBBEAN. THEY PAID NEARLY $8000 FOR AN OC ANNA CRUZ AND 700 THAT WAS FOR TRAVEL INSURANCE. CONNIE’S ONCOLOGIST HAD CLEARED HER FOR THE TRIP. IT WAS ALL UNDER CONTROL, STABLE AND REALLY GOING TO GET BETTER. REPORTER: SCAN REVEALED ONE MONTH AFTER THEY BOOKED THE TRIP THAT THE CANCER HAD SPREAD AGAIN THIS TIME IT WAS IN CONNIE’S BONES. A DOCTOR TOLD HER SHE HAD TO CANCEL THE CRUISE AND START TREATMENT IMMEDIATELY. WHAT DID YOU THINK WHEN THE DOCTOR HE COULDN’T GO ON THIS TRIP? I DON’T WANT TO DIE. MAYBE DOWN THE LINE AND WE’LL GET BETTER AND WE WILL BE ABLE TO GO. A PART OF THE COUPLE FILED ALL THE NECESSARY PAPERWORK TO GET A REFUND THROUGH THE TRAVEL INSURANCE COMPANY DENIED THE CLAIM DUE TO THE FACT THAT CONNIE’S CANCER WAS A PRE-EXISTING CONDITION. WHAT IS THE INSURANCE FOR? WHAT’S IT FOR? IF THERE’S A PROBLEM WE WILL BE REIMBURSED. REPORTER: CONNIE’S DOCTOR SENT A LETTER SAYING SHE WAS STABLE PRIOR TO THE BOOKING. THE COUPLE SAID THEY WOULD HAVE NEVER PURCHASED THE CRUISE OR THE INSURANCE HAD THEY KNOWN HER CANCER DIAGNOSIS WOULD MAKE HER UNINSURABLE. IF SOMETHING COMES OUT OF THIS TELL PEOPLE TO BE A LITTLE MORE UPFRONT ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE BUYING. REPORTER: LOSING NEARLY $8000 THINGS BUT THE COUPLE KEEPS THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE. THEY NOW KNOW WHAT MATTERS THE MOST IS THE TIME THAT YOU HAVE ON THIS EARTH AND CONNIE IS STILL DETERMINED BEST OF IT. MAYBE WHEN I GET BETTER WE WILL TAKE A CRUISE. “2 ON YOUR SIDE” REACHED OUT TO THE TRAVEL INSURANCE COMPANY AND THEY GOT BACK TO US THIS MORNING SAYING THEY HAVE REVERSED THEIR POSITION WILL BE REFUNDING THE COUPLE THE FULL AMOUNT THEY PAID AND THE CHECK SHOULD GO OUT ON MONDAY. THEY DO WANT TO BRING THIS UP, A LOT OF TRAVEL INSURANCE COMPANIES WILL DENY YOU IF YOU HAVE PRE-EXISTING CONDITION AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THAT IN AND THEY PURCHASED THAT INSURANCE WHICH OFTEN IS QUITE EXPENSIVE THINKING THEY’LL BE COVERED. IF YOU HAVE A PRE-EXISTING CONDITION HE WANT TO LOOK INTO THIS. THERE ARE INSURANCE COMPANIES THAT WILL COVER YOU IF YOU HAVE THAT PRACTICING CONDITION BUT IT’S GOING TO BE MORE EXPENSIVE. THAT’S MY TIP FOR PEOPLE. JEFF: WHAT ABOUT THE CRUISE LINE ITSELF? REPORT I DID REACH OUT TO THEM YESTERDAY. I REACHED OUT TO THE CRUISE COMPANY AND CRUZ’.COM. CHRIS’.COM TO GET BACK TO ME. PAT: OC ANNA. REPORTER: THEY DID NOT REACH OUT TO ME BUT THE COUPLE HAS $8000 THEY ARE HOPING THEY CAN HOLD ONTO THAT AND SHE WILL GET THROUGH TREATMENT AND SHE CAN TAKE THAT BUCKET LISTS VACATION

  1. Well they need to put that pre existing condition in large red letters, this is how these companys get by with stuff, small print, PEOPLE READ THOSE CONTRACTS WELL.

  2. Regardless of this heartbreaking diagnosis, the cruise is the highest priority over treatment.

  3. I so hope this couple gets to go on the cruise. I do hope this lovely woman is permanently CURED!

  4. Bless you Connie, Jesus is always with you, he will never leave you, I will keep you in prayer, that you will eventually be able to make that cruise together with your husband!!.
