When I was diagnosed in 2016, I was grateful that in England, all cancer patients were exempt from prescription charges for 5years (it's slightly different in Scotland, Wales and Ireland). However, I was then really surprised to learn that there was no such exemption for dental care. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy can have a severe impact on teeth and gums and many cancer patients suffer with crumbling or loss of teeth.
Yesterday, I started an online campaign (via change.org) to petition Parliament to consider making changes. Please could I ask that you sign the petition? It's absolutely free and the only thing you have to do is leave your name and email address. If you could share the petition to any cancer groups or anywhere on social media that would be amazing!
Thank you for any support you can give.
