He told me to call my congressman, the company is not making much money on mito so they are not making it..I asked if they want to kill us!

Mimi,
I Googled mitomycin shortage. See link below. There seems to be a shortage but it looks like production will pick up in February.

Thanks Mike I had looked this up too. I just wasn't told about this until today my first day of chemo. I just hope it works as well without it. Saw that a few others only had the FU.
