cancer pt's regardless of what type they have, need and deserve access to ALL drugs. Especially those drugs available only to those lucky enough to be in a clinical trial. PLEASE let your senator or rep know how important it is to sign on to and push for passage of the AMTA bill. this simply put, allows your MD to presribe drugs for you now only avail in trials. AMTA(access medical treatment act) if passed, could save your life. think how fast the FDA approved toxic chemo drugs, but drags its heels approving non-toxic drugs. many of these drugs in trials are having terrific results, but won't be available for the rest of us until 10 to 12 years! WE NEED THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE OUR TX> OPTIONS NOW! Please folks, don't sit by and die because the FDA stands in your way. If you don't take charge of your life inasmusch as tx options, who will? As of now, all us cancer patients allow the FDA to say whether we live or die. this will only end when our voices are heard. SPEAK UP, yell from the roof-tops, but help all of us gain access to medications. the life you save may be your own karen b
