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.

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.
