Please sign the following petition to David Cameron and Alexion Pharmaceuticals to allow 12 years old Abi to have life saving medicine.
Because the medication this child requires is not on the NHS approved list 12 year old Abi’s life is under threat.
Please read the following and sign the petition and if you have time please also write to David Cameron and Alexion Pharmaceuticals and ask them to allow Abi her life saving medicine – scroll down for contact details. Also a Go Fund Me link to help raise money for her treatment
“Our daughter, twelve-year-old Abi, has a rare kidney disease that could kill her in five years.
Under lock and key in the hospital where she is treated is the medicine that could save her life.
But thanks to a cruel loophole, doctors are forbidden from giving it to our daughter. That’s why we’ve started a campaign with the Sunday People.
Abi’s one-in-a-million illness is too rare to be covered by NHS England’s drug funding policy but not rare enough to unlock cash for exceptional cases.
And the manufacturer Alexion Pharmaceuticals has refused to drop the eye-watering £136,000-a-year price, making it impossible for us to buy the drug privately.
Allow the NHS to give Abi Longfellow her life-saving medicine”
