Check to see if you can get insurance coverage you don’t have that would come in handy if there were a recurrence or another cancer appears.

Planning: If you haven't before, start to think about how to continue your business if you become unable to continue to work or even if you die. As part of your planning:
- Consider writing a Business Ethical Will to pass on the principles on which you founded or ran the business.
- Think about how to continue the business in the event you get sick, or in case of a disaster which either affects your own business or your supplier(s) and/or customers
A planning day with your advisors may be helpful to consider business continuation and other subjects to think about triggered by your diagnosis.
