Would you mind giving some thought to signing this petition please. I was prompted to sign by a story in my local paper.
A local Mum of 31 was diagnosed with Wild Type Gastrointestinal Stomal Tumour ( GIST) when she was 22.
She said she wants a chance to grow old enough to see her young daughter get married.
Currently there is no cure for GIST and it cannot be operated on.
Now the drug which is likely to prolong this woman’s and others lives could soon be taken off the NHS.
Without the drug, all this mum can be offered is pain relief and end of life care.
Thank you x
