Thank you for visiting the #DefendSecondTransplants petition page. The petition is now closed because….
YOU DID IT!
NHS England announced on Friday 24 February that they will now routinely fund second stem cell transplants for patients who relapse more than one year after their transplant.
This fantastic news is only possible because of all of YOUR support since July 2016.
Thank you so much – this decision shows how making your voice heard really can have an impact. Tragically, this decision comes too late for those who have already been denied the transplant that could have saved their life – but you have helped ensure that patients will no longer have to fight to get the treatment they need.
We’re really grateful to everyone who left a message for the government about why they joined the fight. We’ll still be delivering your messages to Parliament on 22 March to make sure the government knows just how important this issue is to people. Look out for more updates from us.
