Call for Irish Gov to approve Nivolumab/Opdivo for Kidney, Lung Cancer & Melanoma patients

Jacinta Kelleher started this petition to Simon Harris, TD (Minister for Health) (Minister for Health)
Nivolumab is a ground breaking cancer treatment for kidney and lung cancer patients which is available to people in both the US and UK. It is yet to be approved in Ireland because it is not cost effective. Life is priceless and patients should not be deprived of this possible life saving treatment because of its cost. I am currently battling stage 4 kidney cancer at 34 years of age. I, like many others, deserve a chance to live.
