I have a 50-years old friend who has had CLL since 2013. He had a relapse in early 2020. When he was close to death, he was hospitalized to a private hospital in Turkey and was prescribed Imbruvica from Janssen company. Since he does not have insurance, he bought the medicine himself and spent almost all of his saved money on his treatment. Now his life was saved thanks to Imbruvica. According to his doctor, he must continue with the medicine for life, otherwise the disease will return. Unfortunately, he no longer has the financial means to buy the medicine. I wonder if there are aid organizations or other opportunities that can help him to get his medicine oh survive.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a solution to his situation?
