The Breast Cancer Initiative, a women's group that is spearheading the cause of Herceptin, a proven wonder drug for breast cancer. This drug is awfully expensive, Almost costing a whopping 70,000$ for year's treatment, making it available only to the affluent. Therefore, the key agenda of the Breast Cancer Group is to petition the Government for a Subsidy in the pricing.
