Found out today that unfortunately Mums cancer is back - 6 months post first line treatment. Plan is to start carbo/gem regime in a couple of weeks.
I asked about the possibility of applying to the cancer drugs fund for avastin, fully expecting the onc to try and put me off ( don't know why?! ) But she was really positive and is going to apply for the drug for my mum - I'm delighted. I know this is only the first step in actually getting this drug but we are really hopeful.
I wanted to say thank you to all of you on this forum - especially Patsy who I know has gone through a similar process getting this drug. I even told the onc that if we are turned down that we must appeal the decision as I know of someone who got it on appeal! Thank you Patsy for writing about it on here - without the knowledge of your application for avastin then I'm not sure I would have been so confident with asking for it myself.
Wish us luck and keep your fingers crossed everyone for us please xx
