Today, thanks to Benita Brown (a fellow member of the Romantic Novelists Association), my attention was drawn to a petition on the Prime Minister's website. The purpose of the petition is to request that people with the chronic blood disorder ITP (full name: Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura) do not pay for their prescription drugs and treatment. I was only too happy to sign this petition as I myself was diagnosed with ITP at 19 years of age. Fortunately an operation cured me of this largely unknown blood disorder, but others aren't so lucky.
