Serious, life-threatening diseases strike people of any age these days. With so much stress and unhealthy diets around, getting sick is no longer the sole risk of the oldies, it seems.
We recently heard famous vlogger Wil Dasovich recount in person his bout with Stage 3 colon cancer. He was only 25 or 26 when diagnosed and was very much physically fit. It was a good thing he was prepared mentally to overcome the dreaded C by way of surgery and several rounds of chemotherapy. His will to live was strong and of course, he also had the support of his family and friends. Now that he survived and is on remission, Wil can only think about how the whole experience was a wake-up call for him and all the more he should be prepared for everything that will happen in the future.

Wil is undoubtedly the right fit to endorse Philam Life’s latest product. AIA Critical Protect 100 covers people aged 0-100 years old, shielding them with a comprehensive policy in the event they are afflicted with any of the 100 minor and major illnesses in the list, including cancer, heart attack, or stroke.
Furthermore, customers are given more options like a Recovery Benefit Rider and increased coverage for gender specific cancers like ovarian for females or prostate for males.

Philam Life brand ambassador Nico Bolzico points out that a serious illness can easily wreak havoc on one’s plans, as it’s generally unexpected. He stressed that he and his wife Solenn, even though very much financially secure, continue to put extreme importance on getting themselves covered for life’s uncertainties.
“Most couples our age are probably more concerned about acquiring properties or splurging on trips. But Solenn and I have come to understand that protection is the most basic need that we have to address first. Living a healthier, longer and better life comes easily when you know you’re protected,” Nico revealed.
One advantage of AIA Critical Protect 100 is that it’s powered by Philam Vitality, the pioneering app-based wellness program that gives users rewards and incentives for practicing a healthy, fit lifestyle.
Philam brand ambassador No. 3 Raymond Gutierrez loves the fact that Philam Vitality rewards him for living healthy, thus motivating him to always meet his weekly fitness target.
Philam Vitality’s enhanced weekly rewards include free coffee or tea from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, SM Cinema tickets, GrabCar vouchers, Globe postpaid and prepaid credits, on top of preferential discounts from program partners like Toby’s Sports, Garmin, Gold’s Gym, UFC Gym, Hi-Precision Diagnostics, Makati Medical Center, Enchanted Kingdom, Philippine Airlines, Seda Hotels and SM Cinema.

Facts unearthed by Philam Life/ AIA Group in several studies showed interesting insights on how unprepared Filipinos are in the event of health emergencies:
- The average Pinoy household only has an insurance coverage of about P100,000
- Yet 86% consider critical illness as a top concern.
- Approximately 37% of seniors aged 65+ get first time critical illness diagnosis
- The average cost of battling critical illness is P2 million but actual claims amount only to P350,000 which means there is a discrepancy in insurable amount
- 78% of Filipinos surveyed are not prepared because they expect government to shoulder the cost, thereby straining scarce national resources
