Leftover Melanoma Drugs

I've seen a couple of posts recently about left-over melanoma drugs, as well as cautionary replies about scams, confidentiality, etc. I think this is a very valid topic, and would like to know if there are any "legitimate" ways to donate any of these expensive drugs to the melanoma patients who may be without insurance or are being denied the medicine for whatever reason.

Seems to me there should or could be some sort of clearing house to help others?

I do not have anything to add to your question, but I saw a picture of your new grandbaby, congratulations.

I had a full, unopened bottle of Zelboraf and returned it to the Vanderbilt Pharmacy. They were happy to have it and said they are trying to start a program to help those who need it.  How are you guys doing?

Thanks Dick and Amy.

Yes, our granddaughter arrived December 12th, and she is just gorgeous and as precious as can be. Don and I just babysat so the new parents could have their first night out. I hated to give her back!

Don is doing well. We go to Mass General tomorrow (Dec 30) for scans and MRI, but won't get the results until January 8. Life is almost seeming "normal!" We take each day and appreciate it!

I was lucky, I received Zelboraf's almost full packing for the mother, as a gift for Christmas! This gift was from Egypt to Ukraine thanks to a forum!

Thanks Abdullah!

Once, I got on the swindler. She deceived many for large sums. She sent me vitamin C. Criminal case is opened. Justice will triumph!
