T−DM1 Was Approved!

My cancer friend in Japan, Dr. M, told me that T-DM1 was approved in an e-mail.

I opened the Google News and there it was:  I saw the article telling that the FDA finally approved T-DM1 giving it the name Kadcyla on Friday the 22nd, a week earlier than I expected.

According to the article, this new drug called a super Herceptin will cost about $9,800 per month; that will be almost twice as the cost of Herceptin.

If the drug is super good, the price is also super expensive!  Yet , as currently my deductable is zero for Herceptin with Kaiser insurance,  I am hoping it will be the same zero deductable even for Kadcyla (T-DM1) as well.

My next CT scan is scheduled on the 27th in this month.  Of course, I want a good result, but even if not, now I can have Kadcyla!

This is indeed great news and I am grateful for all the people who had signed the petition for T-DM1 to help me get it.

Thank you sooooo much and GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!! 🙂

  2. Hello Kathy,

    A few days ago, I read an article about T-DM1 and thought of you. It will definitely help you! Praise the Lord!

    Tomorrow I will keep you in my prayer all day for getting a good test result on CT.
