For Laser Ablation Surgery to be available in the NHS to treat brain tumours like Hypothalamic Hamartoma (HH)

This petition had 1,418 supporters


Hypothalamic Hamartoma causes a lot of problems but the most debilitating symptom is EPILEPSY. Seizures that are difficult to control by anti-epileptic drugs which means most sufferers have epileptic seizures everyday with varying intensity and frequency. Laser Ablation surgery is a treatment being offered in America which has a great success by completely eliminating these uncontrolled seizures by removing HH totally. It is the only treatment needed for HH sufferers whose brain tumour is deeply rooted which surgery can't remove it completely and successfully. Laser Ablation Surgery is a treatment that these children, young people and adult alike hoped, to enable them to live life normally without the anxiety, emotional and psychological problems, behavioural problems, dependency and sudden death associated with uncontrolled EPILEPSY. Please support us to make this possible. I am starting this petition in memory of my son Anthony, who had Hypothalamic Hamartoma and who had suffered complex seizures every day in his lifetime. Hope we can end this suffering by having this treatment being pioneered in America; LASER ABLATION SURGERY, available here in UK.
