Help me to stay in UK to receive life saving cancer treatment

My name is Emmanuel, I am 21 years old and came to the UK three years ago from Ghana to live with my father who is a British Citizen.  My father works as a Security Guard and uses all his earnings to help pay for my legal fees.

Since being here I have been diagnosed with DFSP- a rare form of skin cancer. I have been receiving treatment and this has meant the growths on my neck and chest have significantly reduced.  To prevent the growth of these tumours I take  medication and attend regular appointments at a specialist cancer centre.  I have been appealing to the Home Office for “leave to remain” but was recently taken to a detention centre at Heathrow. I was released subject to making a final appeal to the Home Office.  If this is not successful I will be returned to my country of birth where I will be alone and with no treatment.

I have so much to give if I was allowed to contribute to society and re-pay the huge debt I owe for this life saving treatment. I am not allowed to work but have been volunteering with a Cancer Charity and taking every opportunity I can to better myself to ensure I am able to find work if I am allowed to stay.   I have dreams of an ordinary life and of being more than a cancer patient.

Please sign this petition and support my application to the Home Office to let me stay and receive the treatment that keeps me alive.

Thank you.  Emmanuel
