Hi,
I saw with interest the HepC buyers club story on the news here in NZ last week.

I'm hoping the connections this forum has made might extend to other forms of treatments that are often not affordable to the average person.

My father is dying from Melanoma and they has been significant success from Keytruda (pembrolizumab), unfortunately it is not funded in NZ and treatment costs around $200,000.

I'm hoping this forum may be able to help, I know there are many 100's of kiwi's in the same position as my father.

Appreciate your time,
Arron

Hi Arron,

So sorry to hear about your situation. Why don't you get in touch yourself with the pharmaceutical suppliers recommended as trusted on this site. The site recommendations are for hepC meds only, but you'd at least have someplace to start.

Hi Arron really glad you showed up here, I have been suggesting to all the journalists your patient group follow up this model, act quickly, from what I understand it will depend on whether the patent for Keytruda is invalid in some countries so generic is an option. You will need to know that, get a doctor and patient advocate, look at what is being done here, very best wishes.
