Pharmaceutical companies/foundations

Hello, everyone. Due to complications, I am forced to take monoclonal antibodies. I am still to take Aquaporin 4 to see if I’m supposed to be on Nataluzimab or Rituximab. However, both medicines have to come from abroad as I live in the Philippines and is not covered by insurance. Can anyone please give me advice on how to get grants from pharmaceutical companies/foundations abroad?
Before you tell me to try in my own country, my own town just denied me of a Person with Disability Card. They’re out of the equation because I don’t look ill enough, and they’re rejecting my medical certificates. PCSO is a long process and won’t even give enough money to cover the expenses.
I don’t have that much time.
Sorry for the wrong grammar, ESL speaker.

@miranieva_buen , try contacting the manufacturers direct and see what financial assistance they can offer :-

Natalizumab – https://www.tysabri.com/
Rituximab – https://www.rituxan.com/

Hi, @stumber. I forgot to mention that I have problems keeping up with the hospital fees due to insurance problems. I can’t use health insurance for the same disease every month.
For this financial assistance, do they cover the complete treatment or the first round? I’m sorry, I don’t understand things. I’m having a bad case of brain fog that hasn’t left in weeks. I feel really dumbed down.

@miranieva_buen , you’ll have to contact the two companies yourself and see what they can offer.
