Sutent donation

Hi everyone

My dad underwent surgery and one of his kidney was removed due a large tumor attached to it. He is now on a drug called Sutent by Pfizer. This drug is extremely expensive. I came to know that this drug does not work for everyone and there are many people with tamperproof unused packages of Sutent and are willing to donate it to someone in need. I would really appreciate any help in getting this drug either as free samples or donations of the drug from people who have unused ones left.

Thank you for reading this.

Pfizer may be prepared to help in genuinely desperate cases.  The drug companies take a lot of flak, in the way of criticsm for their high prices, and sometimes welcome the opportunity to demonstrate that they can be generous.

My father recently passed away due to gallbladder surgery that made his only kidney fail. He tried diyalysis which dI'd not work for him. He was taking Sutent 12.5 mg and I have 5 months worth of pills that I can not just throw waay. These pills are very expensive and I want to help anyone that needs these pills. They don't expire yet and I need to move fast before they do so someone can start using them. They have not been opened at all and are in fact still in the fed ex box that they came in. Please email me at lbridgers30@earthlink.net for more info. and my father had renal cell carcinoma with sarcomotoids, very rare and aggressive cancer that had went to his bones. It was holding for over a year and a half before the gallbladder went out. Let me know ASAP
