That third line of defense was a medicine you’ve likely heard of if you watch even a wee bit of television…
Long story short… based on some highly technical reasons particular to my case, I “made the list” of cancers Keytruda was approved for by the FDA and that my health insurance company was willing to pay for.
Another reprieve on the gallows.
And no time to waste.
I had my first Keytruda infusion on January 18, 2022—exactly one week after thinking all hope was lost.
* Side bar to all the cynics out there: I receive no compensation for mentioning Keytruda. Merck doesn’t even know I exist.
