Aggressive brain tumour treatment frequently delayed for disabled people.

Aggressive brain tumour treatment frequently delayed for disabled people.

Get immediate treatment for Linda Ireneschild, who has IDH wild type glioblastoma (WHO grade IV) which was diagnosed on 5th June after biopsy. Treatment has still not been started yet. We think the reason it has not started yet is because she is disabled and 63yrs old and they don't want to waste money on her treatment.

Why is this important?

Because otherwise this sets a precedent for the NHS denying treatment for certain groups.
