I recently gave an interview to Jo Cavallo, a journalist who is writing a story for a national medical magazine about the dilemma of paying for new targeted therapies against cancer. She asked that I post the following request for interview:
I'm writing a magazine story about the high cost of targeted cancer drugs and I'm looking for cancer patients to interview who have either refused treatment because they can't afford their insurance co-payment
or don't have health insurance at all and can't get the drugs. If you're interested in being interviewed, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you know of a patient who has had such difficulty please email Ms. Cavallo. Thanks.
I suggest looking at The Wall Street Journal's "The Most Expensive Drugs" series (late 2005 to early 2006). These articles featured several patients who were refusing treatment because of the extraordinarily high cost of treatment.
