I keep talking about the medication that protects my son's kidneys. Through 2010, it had a $150 co-pay and cost us $600 for the entire year. It went up to $283 in 2011, then $343 in 2012 and this year $495.03- $1980.12 per year. I don't know about you, but we don't have that kind of money lying around. We don't qualify for any of the assistance programs.
