Tumour Remain Unchange

The size of the tumour remain unchange after the chemotherapy treatment. The onlogist has given us the decision on whether we want to continue the treatment. The chemotherapy treatment will cost S$4500. Medical insurance will pay S$1200 while mediasave that can be utilised is S$1200 and we are still expected to pay around S$2000 in cash settlement. Government subsidies for chemotherapy treatment is only about 10%. Monthly medicine will cost around S$3500 and there is no guarantee of recovery. How can the middle class or lower class citizen pay this amount of bills in long term? There is no way Mr Khaw, Minister of Health can help these group of patients who have terminal illness financially?
