WE MADE IT!!
I'm pleased to say we have WONDERFUL news. As of August, Yervoy will be available to all via the PBS list.
This means that countless lives will be saved or extended & that those who really need the drug will now have two of the most important things they require during their tough/courageous fight 1) Hope & 2) Time.
A MASSIVE thanks to everyone who signed this & other similar petitions, an even BIGGER thank you to those fighters who volunteered their touching stories & provided a "face" for what was previously just a statistic.
While it's a sad that it actually requires people "rattling the cage" to draw attention to these issues, it's also wonderful that so many people care & were willing to lend their voice to our call for change. Together everyone has made a difference & the benefits of this will be felt for years to come down the track.
Unfortunately most people know someone or have loved ones who are touched by cancer - hopefully this provides a ray of light in dark times.
