Although this website focuses on the plight of Jemma Peacock, there are a number of other people with GIST that will be affected by the decision to remove Regorafenib from the Cancer Drug Fund. Thus GIST Support UK have launched a major campaign to help raise the 100,000 signatures needed to have the decision discussed in parliament. You can join the likes of Russell Brand who recently showed his support for the campaign by using #100000voices on Twitter and any of your other social media posts.
Richard Bassett, 27, pictured above was featured on the BBC’s Look East on the same day as Jemma was featured on BBC’s South Today. His girlfriend, who set up the online petition, also took to the radio and was interviewed by BBC Northampton.
The case of Vicky Rockingham, 43, has also been widely published; most recently by the Mail on Sunday with an article written by Stephen Adams which documented the bizarre situation that Vicky finds herself in. Read the full article online here.
As we enter March with over 9000 signatures the deadline of the end of the month is looming and we really do need #100000voices to try and overturn the decision. Please sign the petition and share it as often as you can, however you can.
