Since the age of 10, I have also been living with Crohn’s Disease. Along with Crohn’s Disease, I have suffered from severe chronic migraines, arthritis, sacroiliitis, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, and chronic pain for as long as I can remember. Something they don’t tell you when you’re diagnosed: You may not be able to pay for your treatment. I am fortunate enough to have great insurance coverage, but I still remember the day I received a bill for a chemotherapy treatment I received. It was for $100,000. The number hit me in the chest. How could anyone afford that? I keep this bill as a reminder: The prescription drug pricing system is broken.
