The motion on The cost of #cancer care is currently being discussed in Dáil Éireann ⬇️
#costofcancer #cancerawareness…
Very disappointing attendance at this hugely important debate. Must we die to draw further attention to the issues faced by #cancer patients?

Medical Cards currently being discussed by @MaryButlerTD. Important to say applications of many #cancer patients are being refused.
Whilst I appreciate the cross party support for this motion, actions speak louder than words and with no objections, there's also no excuse not to implement positive measures within a matter of weeks.

Minister @DonnellyStephen, can you commit to this?

#CostOfCancer #cancer
Truly shocking story just told by @HollyCairnsTD of a woman who was refused assistance with her prosthetics by @HSELive because she only had one hand amputated and not both. Absolutely horrific, completely unacceptable & whoever refused this application needs to be investigated.
Deputy @davidcullinane now discussing Cancer Trials in Ireland. We are so far behind other countries in this area. In fact, many patients are completely unaware of The Treatment Abroad Scheme also, a scheme which faciltates treatment in another country if unavailable in Ireland.

1) The time has come for those that have promised, to finally deliver. Not a single politician has opposed my request for enhanced access to The @HSELive Terminal Illness Medical Card for those of us that are dying.
Please, read on.....
2) This is An Tánaiste, @LeoVaradkar promising us reform back in 2014. Seven years later and those of us that are dying, are still having to fight for access.
3) This is An Taoiseach, @MichealMartinTD from February 4th last, complaining about the difficulties surrounding medical card access for the terminally ill.

This evening my good friend @PhelanVicky started a thread about #ReasonsToBeGrateful that remind us what we already have, despite living in an era where so much seems to be taken away.
Here's mine (1)
I have the gift of life. Nearly 3 years ago I was told I had terminal #Cancer & apart from chemotherapy, nothing more could be done. Get my affairs in order they said (2)
One man, my urologist thought different & sent me to Belgium for radical surgery that in conjunction with radiotherapy has not only extended, but given me a quality of life I could only have dreamt of a few short years ago. (3)
