Hi! Welcome to my little corner of the internet, I must say that I didn’t think I’d ever need a website. I didn’t think I’d ever need to find 100,000 people to campaign for a last-resort drug to treat the Wild Type GIST cancer that I was diagnosed with when I was carrying my youngest daughter either!
This site was kindly donated to me when the #100000voices campaign got underway in February 2015 when we began campaigning to raise signatures on the petition to reinstate Regorafenib. Since then the site’s been regularly updated and has grown into something much bigger than any of us could have ever imagined. You can view TV, radio and newspaper interviews in the press section. Elsewhere you can find out more about me and the struggle of living with GIST, the rarest cancer that there is.
Since starting this site I’ve discovered many others in a similar situation and you can meet some of them here too. Fellow “GISTer” Sam Waller, his wife Michelle & their two little boys live near me in Sussex and we’ve recently set up a page for lovely Laura Todd, daughter Amber & fiancée Christopher from Bridlington in Yorkshire.
I’ll be updating the blog as we go but who knows what the next development will be? Keep coming back to find out and I’ll always pop the kettle on when you get here!
