As stated there is no money in curing a disease, it's all in treatment.
I'm going through chemo for non small cell lung cancer now and the prices of the drugs are skyhigh. The cost of treatment with carboplatin and taxol,
which I'm using, was over $49,000 3 years ago. I get injections with Neulasta which helps restore white blood cells. The shots are $2500 per
injection. I have medicine for nausea called Zofran. They are $500 for 12 tablets.
I'm just concerned that there may be other treatments that are just as or more effective than chemo but they're put aside because they don't
generate as much money for the Doctors and pharmaceutical companies.
