I am not sure how people do it without insurance. I guess some dont. Kathleen through UofW has an incredible drug plan. Without it… Well, the retirement savings would be gone. Today she got a new drug http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pegfilgrastim to help keep up her whiteblood cell count. If the count is too low, she cant take chemo. So, its kind of necessary. Below is a pic of the receipt. We paid five dollars. If we didnt have the ‘super awesome private drug insurance’ through Kath’s work… Well, you could buy a nice new Toyota Camry for a cycle.

The injection was done in 3 seconds… about nine hundred dollars a second. Eyebrows were raised while jaw was open.
