“Being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 39 was pretty devastating. My doctor prescribed Humira to put it in remission. To my utter shock, I found out this wonder drug was $3,200! So, needless to say, I went without this prescription for almost two years. I was in so much pain because I could literally feel my feet crippling. My husband went to all lengths to get Blue Cross insurance to get me the help I needed. I now have this wonder drug. Praise God! My immune system is getting stronger and I’m not as sick anymore. I feel so bad for the men and women out there that cannot get the help they need because of money. It’s just wrong that the Big Pharmaceutical companies can charge that much money for one syringe of liquid.”
