Currently we have over 7700 Signatures for Lemtrada Petition which is closing on April 30th

We seek an FDA reversal on their December 30, 2013 decision to NOT approve Sanofi’s Lemtrada, a Multiple Sclerosis Treatment. Patients needs this Medication-option Approved
There are currently 7,770 signatures

PETITION BACKGROUND Thousands of Multiple Sclerosis patients are getting worse each day, when currently used medications are not working for them or their body refuses to accept the medication. 

Another Option is needed and this Option Should be Lemtrada 

The FDA on December 30, 2013 Denies the use of Lemtrada for MS Patients. THIS was A sad day for people with more active Multiple Sclerosis. 

Lemtrada has been approved worldwide, but not good enough for us it seems, in the USA. 

We are more than 400,000 strong (living with MS) in the USA 
WE NEED YOUR VOTE to give another OPTION to those that Can benefit from this medication; hoping to keep them from severe disability. 

Also we need you to write directly. WE NEED YOU TO send emails. – 
We need this request to go Viral -- 

In the middle of March, we submitted 5001 signatures to the FDA by postal mail and via email.

After we close the petition of April 30th, we will submit the final numbers
THIS IS why, for those that have not yet signed this petition, we ask you to consider again, asking the FDA about CHOICE... 
Providing another Choice
