The Wonder Drug

Avastin – “the wonder drug”, is her only chance of extending her survival. A chance not without risk, it could kill her, this type of cancer Jackey has, an atypical Carcinoid, sources it's nourishment by feeding from the blood supply. Avastin basically closes off the blood supply and in effect starves the tumour. This is the first time that we know of the drug being used in Australia to combat this specific type of mediastinal located Carcinoid. This is the only option left for Jackey.
