Life Insurance Awareness Month
Life happens… Loss of Mother Drives NFL Quarterback and Sports Broadcaster to Champion Life Insurance
Rough start for future football star
“Remember, if something happens and you haven’t done the planning, the people you leave behind will feel the brunt of your mistakes.” Words of wisdom from record-setting NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason, this year’s spokesperson for Life Insurance Awareness Month (LIAM).The ING Life Companies are pleased to coordinate with the non-profit LIFE Foundation to help raise awareness about the importance of life insurance, and encourage all Americans to take stock of their insurance needs.
Boomer’s mother Irene died when he was just 7, without life insurance and leaving behind her husband, Boomer and his two teenage sisters. His father Norman worked hard to care for the family, commuting three hours daily to his job, while relatives and neighbors helped cover the things that Boomer’s mother would have taken care of. Had life insurance been there, money would not have been as tight and the Esiason family may have been able to more easily keep the household running as his mother had.
“Life happens at the most unexpected of times, and life insurance is about protecting the future and the people you love,” Boomer says. “It’s my responsibility to make sure that if something happens to me, my family will be taken care of financially.”
