Breast Cancer Patients and Families to Protest FDA
Health

The following information was brought to us by Bryan Wilkes:

SILVER SPRING, MD – Breast cancer patients and their families will rally together on Tuesday, June 28, at 7:00 am outside of the Federal Drug Administration (FDA).  The issue will be the FDA’s final hearing to remove the drug Avastin from the approved medication list for treatment of late stage breast cancer.

Terry Kalley, founder of the Freedom of Access to Medicines (FAMEDS), will lead the protest and then testify at the morning FDA hearing on behalf of his wife.  For more information on FAMEDS and Kalley’s story, go to www.fameds.org.

Following the FDA hearing, the group will make its way to Capitol Hill for congressional visits, and wrap up the day with a media availability at 1:30 pm in 2103 Rayburn House Office Building.
