Everyone knows someone who has battled cancer. Some have won, some, very tragically, have lost. But there’s no way I’m letting this beat me without a massive fight!
So, here’s some info about the latest wonder drug that I am hoping to add to my armoury, thanks to your wonderful help and support.
Avastin (also called bevacizumab) is a cancer medicine that interferes with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body.
Avastin is used to treat a certain type of brain tumor, and certain types of cancers of the kidney, lung, colon, rectum, cervix, ovary, or fallopian tube.
Unfortunately, this drug is not currently available on the NHS and will cost me £1500 every two weeks.
Thank you to my friends and family for your continued support in helping me raise the necessary funds to enable me to have this drug!
