    Thankfully my health insurance provider approved Jakafi for treatment of my Myelofibrosis. Otherwise I would not be able to afford Jakafi. Please bring down the cost of this drug, so those not as fortunate as I, can have the option of taking Jakafi. There are so few options for those of us with MPNs, it’s a shame that cost is the prohibiting factor.
