Allow primary carers of Cancer patients to stay in the UK

This petition had 3,315 supporters

Keith Lawrence was diagnosed with stage 3 bowel cancer in October 2015 at the age of 40. He has since undergone three courses of chemotherapy alongside radiotherapy and major surgery. He still suffers from severe side effects of the treatment some of which may be permanent. He has had a significant portion of his large intestine removed and needs almost constant care, being unable to conduct some of the most basic household tasks.

Despite the Home Office acknowledging that he is desperately ill and in dire need of constant care, they are threatening to deport Keith's wife and primary carer Chantille Lawrence to Jamaica leaving her sick husband here alone.

Let's not allow the Home Office to put us and other cancer sufferers in the same position in the future. After being married and living together for over 6 years, the Home Office should give Chantille Indefinite Leave to Remain in order to look after her sick husband. 

Please support us by helping us persuade the Home Office to stop tearing families apart like this. Please sign this petition and share it as much as you can ... Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, anywhere you can think of. 

Something like this can happen to anyone without anyone being held accountable.

Signing this petition will help to MAKE THIS STOP. 

Thank you so much for you support and for all the kind messages. They are all very much appreciated indeed.
