    Tom,
    I should have hired you as my new consultant with your knowledge of travel insurance.  As much as I don't want to admit it, I'm pretty sure I'm home for the long haul. My husband and I are considering an RV as a travel option because we can get away but not be reliant on others to clean up after us, feed us, etc. 
    I'm with you - I didn't beat lung cancer to get taken out by this, either. I have plans!

    Susan,
    I've had so many scheduled trips cancelled, I've become an expert in travel insurance claims!
    My medical team all suggest a strict quarantine till herd immunity is established. This due to my very low pulmonary capacity and the primary attack point of the virus is my under capacity lung. I'm sitting this one out confined to the house or driving Martha to a shopping destination and remaining in the car. Martha disinfects everything brought into the house including Amazon packages and the mail. 
    There is much clamor to open the nation and oddly I think that is a good idea. There won't be herd immunity till the virus spreads through a large portion of our population. A vaccine may help but I'm troubled by reports I've read about re-infection with COVID-like symptoms. So this may behave like our annual flu virus where virologists take a best guess at a vaccine formulation that may not have any effect on the virus in circulation. 
    One more thing I think about---I don't want to have waged a successful campaign against lung cancer to be taken out by a simple virus! So, I am staying inside and....
    Staying the course.
    Tom

    Thank you, Michelle, for taking the time to compile this.  One never knows when it might be needed.  Insurance companies are not fun to deal with and are "sticklers" when it comes to details.   So far, I thank my lucky stars that I have not yet had to do battle with them yet, but I am very new in this "game."   Thanks again!!

    Newly diagnosed April 11, 2019, and it is so good to read all of this information from survivors...do not compare my new life with lung cancer to my old one.  I need to start a journal with all of these quotes in it to get me through my dark days.  Thanks to all for sharing...
