That blog belongs to a UK citizen who has a rare, chronic and severely debilitating illness, PNH. Recently, a drug was developed that will allow people who suffer from this condition to manage their symptoms and live relatively normal lives. The drug has been approved for use in the UK (as well as many other countries), but the small number of UK patients who need it and who went through the lengthy drug trial to test it are in iminent danger of being denied access to the drug because it’s expensive. Details about PNH, its effects and the changes that this medication brought about in the lives of people taking it are in the linked post.

If you are a UK taxpayer, please take a moment to sign the online petition:

And then please take a moment to write a note expressing your support for a Health Ministry decision to fund this drug for patients who need it to live. You can write to the Health Minister here:
