Verzenio Approved for Women with HR+, HER2- Advanced Breast Cancer

This is promising news-full recovery from tumor growth and 28.4 months of non-advancement of disease. Well, good news that if things go awry with #Ibrance #Verzenio seems like a good next measure. I have to say while I cannot fathom the profits of big pharma yet given my benefits from the advances in medical treatments for Stage 4, imagine if more than 3-5% of R&D were spent on saving our lives? If cancer at stage 4 was not a trip to waiting in a lonely cold jail cell on death row? Picture me running my tin cup along the bars of the jail cell!?!

Ilene

Female. East coast transplant living in the Bay Area of California. Living with Stage IV breast cancer. Married to the coolest guy in the universe who occasionally suffers from serious depression. Love my stepsons, although I never thought I'd have that thankless job - ever! And my best friend Simon is also my cat. How I have survived with stage IV: treatments including chemo and surgery; palliative oncology; tenacity; a dark sense of humor; support groups; and my newly reinvented career as a vintage and antiques maven. Some days I miss the old me who led a well respected and well paid life as a business strategist in high tech. So much for that. I blog to simply share my experiences and my poetic approach with others who have cancer of any kind or with their care givers and those who love them. If one person at the very least finds a little commonality or a friend out in the ether tor a smile, a common nod about this experience, or even a link to assistance, then I have accomplished a small but extraordinarily meaningful goal. Go team.
