To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament:

Citizens of Australia Draws to the attention of the House Intestinal Stromal Tumours is affecting more young people and the new drug “Glivic” is their only chance of surviving if taken when diagnosed early. Without this drug they have a shorter life span and the prohibitive cost is beyond the resource of many with this condition.

Your petitioners therefore pray that the House ask the House to Place the Cancer Drug “Glivic” to the free list {or meet past of the cost} in the VERY near future.

by Mr Wilkie (from 257 citizens)
