Cancer Research & the Drug Companies

This petition had 903 supporters


My son who is 34 passed away from a brain tumour in December 2016, He had already been through an operation in 2012 to remove as much of it as they could followed by a year of chemotherapy and 7 weeks of radiotherapy. I cannot tell you how much Mr Herbert at Bristol Oncology and Mrs Hopkin originally did for my son. The work they do is incredible. We must never knock our NHS  as a Country and we must never let it die.

  • NICE and the drug companies are still arguing over the cost of a drug called Nivolumab, which has been said to be a game changer in the fight against head and neck cancers.  It was supposed to be rolled out in 2015, then it was 2016 now it might be August 2017.  How many more people like my son are going to die because of the cost of these drugs surely, with Governments help we can get the cost of these drugs down.  The drug companies make billions, yet Cancer Research is entirely funded by you the public.  Again can we ask Government to help fund Cancer Research to help find a cure for the this most deadly disease.
  • Please sign my petition if you care about people dying of cancer for the sake of profit.
