Unfortunately, under the law that small notice in advance of the cancellation period is all that is required under the law. However, you would have to try to argue that they should grant a waiver of that based upon the fact that you were medically incapable of responding to that notice and provide medical documentation regarding your incapacity. The problem you have is that if you did not try to cancel as soon as you were medically able to do so, the longer the delay the more difficult it would be to argue your position. BUT, the problem is that unless they agree to do this, legally they can bind you to the contract.
