JenkazMrs Posted April 3, 2008 Share Posted April 3, 2008 Hi All, We are celebrating today the fact that my husband has now been on Tarceva for a year and had great success. Our local paper did a follow up I have included the link below. A CANCER sufferer is celebrating a milestone in his treatment today. It's been a year since grandad Jimmy Jenkyns, 55, of Bainbridge Avenue, Simonside, South Shields, started taking lung cancer drug Tarceva. The victim of a postcode lottery, he was forced to pay for the drug privately at first, at a cost of £1,700 a month, because health chiefs in South Tyneside refused to fund it. But after a high-profile campaign, led by his wife Deanne, 40, South Tyneside Primary Care Trust agreed to pay for the drug in September.
