Cancer drug coverage needs reform: report just one of many Reforms Needed via an Election here

The average cost of treatment with newer cancer drugs is now $65,000.

Some cancer patients in Canada are paying thousands of dollars per year for drugs that keep them alive,

while others don't pay a cent, according to a report that calls for an end to the discrepancies.

I lost my husband 3 years ago to pancreatic cancer. he was 32. we couldnt afford treatments. we had to use the "rife machine" at an alternative health care clinic.
there is nothing worse than watching someone you love wither away to nothing, knowing there is nothing you can do about it.
