Hi Everyone. My father recently lost his battle with lung cancer. But boy was he a fighter! Through a contact at our congregation, we were able to acquire some Cimavax. All the stories i’ve read indicates that its a really successful vaccine to help extend life of someone battling lung cancer. But by the time we got it for my father, it was a bit too late. I still have 3 doses left. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Hi thatslife,

Welcome to GRACE. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear father. Lung cancer is a terrible disease that has taken too many good people from us.

I understand that you do not want this medicine to be wasted. When my wife passed, I had a number of doses of Tarceva left over, as well as other pain medications, blood thinners, etc. Unfortunately, wasteful as it may seem, safety issues prevented me from passing these on to others who might need them. As a result, I have removed your contact information from your post.

I hope that you can understand, and I hope that time will provide peace and comfort to you and your family.
