Palbociclib (also called Ibrance) is used to treat hormone receptor positive, HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer. Palbociclib is available in 52 countries, but Australia is not one of them. The only way Australians can get it is by buying it from overseas for about $10,000 a month, or participating in a clinical trial.

Palbociclib is being considered for sale in Australia and BCNA needs your help. Sign our online petition. Tell the government decision-makers that this is an important drug. We need it in Austraila and we need it to be affordable.

Sign our petition here: https://www.bcna.org.au/about-us/advocacy/current-advocacy-issues/palbociclib-petition/

And share it! Tell others to sign it too.

    Hi, Cosette,
    What a wonderful initiative, I am one of those women who would benefit from Ibrance, I am on Xeloda and have been for 12 months, the side effects arent very nice, but I have had to learn to live with them, {dont fancy the alternative!} this drug would change the quality of life for so many of us - thank you to you and all of the fantastic women who sign and share this - we can make a difference! -
