The following is a letter sent to us by a TOC reader.
First of all, I would like to wish you a speedy recovery from your most recent surgery. I certainly understand the difficulties of spending your days in the hospital. But I wrote to you on a very worrying matter. You see, I am 65 and I am a cancer patient. I have contracted Myloma since 2009, a rare blood cancer. Since election is around the corner, I would like to hear what you could do for cancer stricken patients like me.
I am old; please do not take the opportunity to get good PR through
answering this question. I just want you to answer, why cancer treatment and cancer drugs are not subsidized in government owned hospital?
