Cancer patients and oncologists are dealing with an alarming shortage of critical chemotherapy drugs. Specifically, oncologists have short supplies of platinum-based generic drugs called cisplatin and carboplatin used to treat lung, breast, bladder, ovarian, endometrial, head and neck cancers.
Shortages have been happening for months, and oncologists say when one shortage supply gets better, another one gets worse. Some are being forced to ration the medicines to patients who need them the most.
We want know, are you or is someone you love impacted by the cancer drug shortage of cisplatin or carboplatin? We’d like to speak with you or your loved one for this story if you’re willing, so leave your name and number in the forum below.
