Cancer Drugs Fund extended

Many recent posts have been a little disheartening with lots of friends lost to this disease. It was nice to read of Una's (Poleglass) award yesterday and I think more good news is welcome.

Here's a link to a MSN article following The Prime Minister's announcement that the cancer drugs fund is to be extended. I think that while a more permanent arrangement needs to be put in place for the future, this is good news. It means access to drugs like Avastin will still be available to those who meet the criteria.
