Hearing Improvement after Bevacizumab "Avastin" in Patients with Neurofibromatosis type 2. This is really great news for NF2 people, Avastin is a wonder drug. Only problem is people like me who have insurance still can not get the med paid for. It would be great for NF2 to get the kind of exposure your show can bring it by doing a show about NF2. I have attached a link about the results they are getting. Maybe even a show about how the trials and how they work, Dr. Scott Plotkin is an excellent research Dr. This is a horrible disease that has really good options right now, HOW DOES ONE GET TREATMENT STARTED? Surgery is horrible and leaves the person with NO Balance, Facial Paralyzed, not able to blink, throat not able to swallow yet Insurance company's would rather put one thru that then pay for this awesome new treatment. There has been a few people to get ins. to pay for it and more exposure would help open the doors up even more, FDA is working on a faster approval. Again exposure would help speed this. You guys have a great show I watch all the time. Keep up good work, check out the link below... Its a miracle drug!!! Genentech Corp. ROCKS!!
