Following this week's very moving Four Corners program which told the stories of a number of Australians living with advanced cancer and their experiences in accessing high cost drugs not on the PBS, ABC Local Radio is hosting a discussion on the value we place on drugs that may extend life. What price would you be prepared to pay for a drug that may add three months to your life?
BCNA CEO Maxine Morand will be a guest on the program, along with medical oncologist Professor Fran Boyle and Vanessa, a woman who is living with secondary breast cancer. There may also be an opportunity for listeners to call in and share their views.
The program is this Sunday (1 Sept), 10.00pm on your ABC Local Radio station.
