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.

    Sutent

    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.

    Free Sutent donation to anyone in need

    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 [email protected] 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

    Sutent

    If you start taking Sutent MAKE SURE YOUR DOCTOR KNOWS. I can't stress this enough. Some of the potential side effect can be life threathing. If you are not under doctors care taking Sutent it can kill you. These family of drugs can effect your liver. I am on Votrient 800mg for almost 19 months. At least every 2 months I have to get blood taken. They do a variety of tests. So far no problems. I have an appoitment for blood work at MGH tomorrow. Contact Pheizer and Glasko and others to see if they have a program that will help you. make sure you are under doctors care......

    I spoke with my doctor today. They said that Phyzer has programs for people who are having trouble paying for Sutent and drugs like that. If your doctor is unaware of these programs I would suggest changing doctors. Those programs are out there.
