Well today I have been able to breathe a sigh of relief. It has been announced today that Perjeta, the drug I receive, will continue to be funded through the Cancer Drug Fund. Today was when 6 drugs used for treatment for breast cancer, as well as drugs to treat other types of cancer, would have their fate decided. Perjeta is 1 of 3 drugs used to treat secondary breast cancer that will be kept. Sadly 3 drugs which are also used have been axed.
From my personal experience & from what I have heard from the nurses, Perjeta has very few side effects and, although, it is given intravenously there is hope that in the future this could change.
