I knew there was something else.

While researching Hand-Foot Syndrome, there was a Google link to Avastin. Why, I don't know, but Avastin is the drug I get at the same time as the chemo.

So I clicked and came across a WSJ article, probably a press release, about Avastin's effect on ovarian cancer.

Nice one, Roche!

And: My treatment came to 24,000€ last year (is that all?), of which we paid 1,000€.


  1. I looked up Hand-Foot syndrome and came across a "don't" list. One of those was "No jogging, aerobics, power walking, jumping - avoid long days of walking." This is just in case you are tempted.
