My Auntie Kristina, needs help.
She was diagnosed with HER2 Positive Breast Cancer Last February 2016.
HER2-positive breast cancer is a breast cancer that tests positive for a protein called human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), which promotes the growth of cancer cells.
In about 1 of every 5 breast cancers, the cancer cells have a gene mutation that makes an excess of the HER2 protein. HER2-positive breast cancers tend to be more aggressive than other types of breast cancer. They're less likely to be sensitive to hormone therapy, though many people with HER2-positive breast cancer can still benefit from hormone therapy.
Treatments that specifically target HER2 are very effective. These treatments are so effective that the prognosis for HER2-positive breast cancer is actually quite good.
The treatments include:
Pertuzumab (IV)- which cost her S$7500 per session. She needs 12 sessions needed
she only had 1 session because it is so costly.
Another treatment is Trastuzumab (Herceptin)-
which cost her $4,196. She needs 12 session.
She can only afford few sessions on this kind of treatment because all their savings are now used up and zero balance.
Chemo- $3,800 per session.
Injections after chemo- for haemoglobin (4 vial)
$140 x 4=$ 560
She already spend
first treatment- $31,000
2nd treatment- $10,180
3rd treatment- $ 10,089
Surgery (Lumpectomy) is schedule on June 3rd week.
After the surgery the treatment and chemo will continue.
-She has HOSPITALIZATION PLAN but her breast was excluded due to pre-existing, which means all her expenses related to breast will not be paid by the insurance company.
