MassMutual Survey: Female Cancer Survivors Better Prepared Financially Than Other Women For Life's Unexpected Events
Date:6/4/2009

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Women who have experienced cancer have some timely advice on National Cancer Survivors Day for women who haven't: it's important -- and comforting -- to get your financial plans in order.

  • be ready to retire (+13%);
  • be more interested i
