User Comments:

For Breast Cancer, Metastatic “Diagnosed breast cancer 1/28/16 metastatic, spine and ilia crest, 3/14/16. Started Ibrance/Letrozole in April. After 24 cycles I am NEAD and original tumor is not showing on PET scans. Recently talked to a woman that was starting cycle 37 so I am extremely optimistic for the future. Side effects are manageable. Wish everyone was this lucky.”

For Breast Cancer, Metastatic “I have been on Ibrance for a few years now, with Fasoldex and Zometa with good results. But I have started taking money from my Roth IRA, and now can’t afford the $780 monthly co-pay. I’m also on Medicare (with supplemental insurance) so I can’t use the coupons. So it is saving my life, but I can’t afford it now. So wrong….”

Thank you pfizer and everyone involved in the studies who lived and died so I may live longer!”

For Breast Cancer, Metastatic “My mother was given this medication by her oncologist. She had been fine until this medication caused her to lose her appetite. She declined so rapidly that she soon passed. The cancer had not had time spread that rapidly. She was 81, she had metastatic breast cancer in the bones. Her Doctor refused to take off the medication until she insisted and she was on tamoxifen for a week. I don’t believe she should have ever been put on this medication but her doctor is money hungry. The cancer did not kill my mother negligence did.”
