FDA can stop 19 year old terminal brain tumor patient's treatment in 3 days!
May 23, 2016 — Nineteen year old Eugene (Neil) Fachon is responding well to Dr. Burzynski's ANP treatment. He was initially denied this treatment by the FDA even though his type of highly malignant brain tumor (DIPG) is fatal almost 100% of the time. DIPG patients respond poorly to chemo and radiation. These conventional treatments show little, if any efficacy, meaning they DO NOT WORK AND THE PATIENT DIES. They are also highly toxic and have very severe side effects. ANP on the other hand, is shown in clinical trials with peer reviewed results in medical journals to have a dramatically higher remission rate than any conventional treatment. ANP also has few and mild side effects by comparison.
Bottom line: WITHOUT ANP THIS YOUNG COLLEGE STUDENT WILL DIE. As we posted recently, a federal court ruled in favor of allowing Eugene to resume treatment. But that ruling is only in effect for 2 weeks. This Thursday, May 26 THE FDA WILL BE ABLE TO STOP HIS TREATMENT ONCE AGAIN!
We've been told our last option to get the FDA to refrain from putting another clinical hold on the administration of ANP is to appeal to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chaired by Jason Chaffetz of Utah. We have been advised by our very powerful outside counsel that emails, letter and phone calls to the Committee may be effective in getting them to hold hearings and pressure FDA to back down.
Your emails, letters and phone calls will put added pressure on the committee to make this happen. THIS IS A POLITICAL BODY AND THEY RESPOND TO NUMBERS.
In your email, letter or phone call DEMAND THE COMMITTEE CONVENE HEARINGS CALLING FOR FDA COMMISSIONER KEEGAN TO ACCOUNT FOR HER DECISION TO WITHHOLD LIFE SAVING TREATMENT FROM EUGENE FACHON, AND FURTHER DEMAND THAT FDA REFRAIN FROM PUTTING ANOTHER HOLD ON THE CLINICAL TRIAL AND ALLOW EUGENE A CHANCE AT LIFE.
Who is the FDA to play God in such a clear-cut exercise of their power over a young American's life? This is our last hope! This is the last hope for the Fachon family! Please help as follows:
