I Have Been Approved!

Dr R called me on my cell this morning as I drove to work. He told me that he just received a letter from my insurance informing him that I have been aproved for pazopanib!

The letter I got on Saturday was for the first appeal, which was denied.  But the second appeal was approved. (I didn't even know there had been a second apeal!)


I get to take the easy chemo!  I get to strangle the tumors by denying them new blood vessels! 

I have more to say, but I have to get to work.

That is absolutely fantastic news. I follow all of your posts and am thrilled (and frankly surprised) that the insurance company is treating you like a real person, not just a treatment protocol. I am so happy for you.
