Cancer drug Keytruda needs to be on the PBS. Every 3 weeks a pensioner has to pay $3169 !!

My friend Jill had major colon surgery for bowel cancer in October 2016. Four weeks later she started chemotherapy and the side effects were so severe she required hospitalisation 3 times.
Her particular type of cancer represents 5% percentage of bowel cancers. Her oncologist suggested an immunotherapy treatment (Keytruda) to unblock the immune system which has a 60% success rate. She has had two treatments thus far to good effect but each treatment costs $3169 and she as she is a pensioner she does not have access to large financial assets.
Jill needs Keytruda every 3 weeks: it needs to be listed on the PBS so Jill and others can live without their families having to sell their homes to pay for their loved ones treatment.
