Ukrainian patient Zelboraf

Post by Irina » Sat Oct 12, 2019 9:04 am

Hello lovely people

Please help with advice

My father was designed with melanoma in 2011. Had surgery and everything was good till 2019
In August they found massive metastasis in liver

We went to Poland,as in Ukraine doctors give up on him

Lovely doctor in Warsaw prescribed Zelboraf, but in Ukraine
It's cost 1500 per 56 tables. Obviously my father with pension of 200 euro
Can not afford it.

Maybe one of you know any Roche program that can support or help a bit
I heard in Turkey they sell Zelboraf cheaper.

Please if any one can give advice.

And i wish you health!

I believe your best bet is to get another opinion at UZ Brussels. They have socialized medicine in Brussels and they are up on the latest treatments. Here is the general contact: Phone: +32 2 477 64 15 -
Universitair Ziekenhuis Brussel I hope this is helpful.
