    Yesterday was an important day for UK Melanoma patients as NICE approved Ipilimumab and Vemurafenib!!! This means that these drugs will eventually be reimbursed by the NHS and accessible to all Melanoma patients, not only ones living in areas with the right cancer funds. Many people here from this list have submitted their comments to NICE stating how important these drugs are, so this shows that it IS possible to influence what is happening to us and our loved ones!
