Yesterday marked two years since I’d been declared NED (no evidence of disease) and tomorrow marks three and a half years since diagnosis. I thank God for the days he has given me and the opportunity to enjoy life and serve him in new ways.
Yesterday also marked the announcement by the government that Crizotinib was going to be added to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme from 1 July 2015. This is very exciting, especially for those who have been paying for this targeted lung cancer treatment treatment. The price drops from $80,000 a year to $456 a year. I have not commenced this treatment as yet, but it means it will be affordable if and when I need it. For now, I continue on chemo. Why—because it’s working, and if it aint broke then I shouldn’t change it, apparently!
