Bill seeks to bring down patient costs for cancer pills
The Bay Citizen

Robert Adler was shocked at 50 when what seemed like pneumonia was actually multiple myeloma, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. He was in for another shock when he found out that his first monthly prescription for an oral anti-cancer drug would cost $3,200. Adler, of Laguna Hills, said friends and family helped him come up with more than $42,000 for the Revlimid pills he needed for a course of treatment.
