I had my transplant in june of this year, I had a few problems and I was in hospital for around 7 weeks, I was let home then re-admited following a blockage for which I have to go back in to have another op, I am unable to walk properly because of previous problems, I cant wash, dress or cook myself a meal and I had an eye removed also this year and am registered severely short sighted in the other. I took out a funeral bond with the co-op and am paying around £95 a month but it looks like I will lose my Disability benefit as it ends in January 2013 and they say I have to have an Atos medical examination on the 6 December (and we all know the outcome of those)! So I will have to cancel my funeral bond as I will only get £220 a fortnight and my rent is £200 a fortnight as I pay towards the internet, tv, phone and my landlord took out a contract phone for me when I was on the transplant list so they could always get hold of me and I pay him for that too (he's my stepdad by the way). Does anyone know if it is possible to get any help with funeral costs at all so my daughter and family are not left with a high funeral bill should I pass away? If not does anyone reckon it may be cheaper to try and get life insurance? I hope someone can help, Thank you.
