Cost of the Cure: Hall-Perrine Patient Shares Her Story

Drug prices are skyrocketing, especially the cost of specialty drugs used to treat incurable diseases like MS, Hepatitis C and Cancer.

A Mayo Clinic publication says the average price of Cancer drugs for about a year of therapy jumped from between $5,000 and $10,000 before 2000 to more than $100,000 by 2012.

In this special report, Scott Sanborn from KGAN CBS-2 shows you some of the reasons for the sharp climb in cost, a resource for help and a very resilient retiree.
