Unhappy Re: Lucky 13 ?? I hope so !!!!!!!!!!

Please help. My sister is needing Herceptin treatment after biopsy, lumpectomy, masectomy, 6 rounds of chemo, radiation and now Herceptin. We come from Kenya and there is no financial support so this has drained our family financially. We have no idea how we are going to raise the funds for Herceptin treatment about 15 000 dollars. I cannot find this financial support thread in the link. Can someone tell me what to do? She is 31 with two kids under 10

Bless you all

I think Genentech sometimes give this drug for free or a small amount to people on a strict low income so you could try contacting them for assistance but hopefully someone else can advise you more!
