a great phone call
As I think I mentioned, we have begun a new drug called PD1. Our insurance denied payment because it is currently only approved for melanoma. The testing for Osteosarcoma began this week but it will be months before that data is available. We don't have that long to wait so we decided to pay it on our own. Our doctor submitted a request to the drug company asking if they could give me some kind of better price since I was paying myself and insurance wasn't helping. The drug company turned down our request. We were just planning on paying $8000 every other week and somehow finding the money. It would have added up. I think that treatment would have consisted of at least 6 injections at $8000 each. It might have even been more.
So, today, I came home and was just sitting down for lunch when a phone call came in asking for me by name. The lady on the phone said she was calling from Brystyl Meyers. She said "We have decided as a company to provide all of your drug at no cost to you. It will be shipped directly to your doctor"
Well that started me crying. She asked if I was okay I told I was just so grateful. " i have been through so much. What you are doing means so much to me" She just said "We re glad we can help you" Every time I turn round I see another miracle from God
