The Australian Government: To stop the budget cut to cancer treatment
This is an inhumane act and is a national disgrace to victims of cancer and it endangers the lives of all present and future cancer patients.
- Minister for Health, member for Sydney
We the people feel it is inhumane to cut expenditure on the treatment of cancer. This budget cut will severely endanger the lives of many cancer patients and future cancer patients. Cancer is an extremely horrific disease and cause untold anxiety and stress upon sufferers and their families. Premium cancer treatment saves lives. Through this cost cutting measure the government becomes negligent in its care for the welfare and chances of survival of patients with cancer. We/I request the Australian government to reconsider this budget cut and help to continue to provide this much needed service to the Australian public. Confidence in cancer treatment care helps to ease the road to recovery and preserving life. We the people call upon the government to block this budget cut for the welfare of all Australians.
