Malcolm Turnbull: I have breast cancer and can't afford to live – please help

This petition made change with 4,283 supporters!


Right now I can’t afford to keep myself alive. I’m struggling with breast cancer, but the treatment I need is too expensive. Unless the government subsidise the Zoladex needle on the PBS - women like me won’t be able to fight breast cancer.

I had to stop my job because my cancer got so bad. I’m expected to rely on a tiny government payment of $300/wk - but I haven’t received any of it this entire year! It’s impossible for me to pay the $350 sting each month for one needle of treatment.

It’s outrageous and unfair - some patients are getting the treatment subsidised, others like me aren't with no fair justification. Because I’m under 40 years and “only” have Stage 3 cancer, I’m discriminated against for medical costs help.

My doctors have said I’ll need the treatment for at least 6 years - that’ll cost over $25K that I don’t have.

I don't know how long I can keep fighting. Please, many women are struggling, alone like me. We’re desperate.

Please sign and share my petition calling on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Health Minister Sussan Ley to immediately list Zoladex on the PBS to give breast cancer sufferers like me an equal shot at surviving.
