In May of 2012, I received devastating news and was diagnosed with Stage IV Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Five months following my diagnosis, I began chemotherapy treatments. My treatment regimen included chemo treatments for 6 months followed by 24 months of immunotherapy, during which I faced hour long trips from my hometown to receive treatments and routine checkups.

During this extremely difficult time, my biggest advocates were my wife, children and the AIS team. AIS allowed me to work around my doctor appointments, treatments and sickness from chemotherapy. They recognized the side effects of my treatments and provided outstanding support throughout the entire process. Because of the extensive time off benefits offered by the company, I remained employed full-time throughout the entire treatment process.

Each chemo treatment cost upwards of ten thousand dollars, and if it wasn’t for AIS, I would have likely faced bankruptcy. I quickly learned the value of the AIS health insurance offerings, as well as the flexibility the company provides to us. I could not have won my battle with cancer without the support I received from my co-workers, supervisors and the leadership team. I can only hope that anyone battling issues with their health is working for and receiving support from a company like AIS.
