Call on Medicare to Fully Cover Car-T Cell Therapy

This petition had 66,361 supporters

My mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 lymphoma four years ago, had a stem-cell transplant, and is now in dire need of therapy after her cancer came back in March of this year. The only option she has left is the recently approved CAR-T cell therapy, which is not fully covered by Medicare. 

Medicare reimburses up to 25% for treatment, which is not enough. Her doctors informed her that Medicare may approve treatment within the next several months, given the agency's decision cycles. My mother can't afford to wait this long, as her life depends on this treatment. Therefore, we need to urge Medicare to take action now!

Support my family's efforts to get Medicare to cover the full cost of CAR-T cell therapy by signing this petition. 

Nowadays, many of us personally know or have friends whose loved ones are affected by cancer. CAR-T cell therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that may not only save my mother's life but also revolutionize how we battle cancer and reduce the need for toxic treatments like chemotherapy. 

Other patients who received CAR-T cell therapy have experienced complete remissions after having no other alternative approved treatments available to them. 

My family's hope is that this may be the case for our mother too.
