Hi, My mum has recurrent stage 4 Ovarian/Peritoneal cancer and she's getting to the end of her treatment options at Peter Mac. So far she's had primary debulking and chemo, then an immunotherapy trial, and now PARP inhibitors. Her CA125 is starting to creep back up on the PARPs and she thinks that Peter Mac are going to throw the towel in soon, but she doesn't want to stop fighting. So we're wondering if anyone has had a great experience with a private Gyno-Oncologist anywhere around Melbourne who she could consult with? Particularly any who have been willing to treat in ways or when the public health system won't. Thank you so much for your help and insights.

Hi all, My mother forgot to pick up her Olaparib script at Peter Mac today and she desperately needs tonight's dose (she has Ovarian Cancer). Wondering if anyone who lives in Melbourne or surrounds could lend her two tablets tonight and she'll replace them tomorrow. Apparently you can't get it at any normal pharmacies and all the hospital pharmacies are closed. She's based in the South East but willing to travel. We just found out the medication is working (her CA125 dropped 130 points in a month from 180 to 50!) and we were so excited she completely forgot to get the script filled. Thank you so much for your assistance.
