signed! thx Krish. I think they perhaps should not wait till the other 50K sigs. arrive. It would be better to have individual letters/ emails sent to the FDA, like we did in the Eteplirsen case for the boy.

Good idea Angelika... I will write to FDA as I did for Etiplirsen.. Friends & Relatives of McKenzie are taking help of media to get their story OUT.. she'z featured on Fox News.. Huffington post live..
You can see her FB Page here
Friends of McKenzie Lowe

Her grandfather is trying to go on National media & put pressure on White House to allow compassionate use for McKenzie as well as other kids suffering with same issue..the video here shows their appeal on Fox news..

Krish- now FAUX "NEWS" doesn't seem to exactly be the best of addresses for their appeal. I do suggest that some of us contact the family via the PA link in the petition and encourage them to write up a letter, doesn't have to be very long-that each od us can send to the FDA and perhaps to other govt officials as well.
Thx for your dedication to do that on your own initiative!

Signed! Really hope it helps- they have a lot of signatures already, so it looks hopeful for her and her family!! :) Fingers crossed it all works out for them

I tried to do that.. suggest them to write to FDA soon..
Thru PA link I couldn't contact them but I got to know their FB Page.. sent a message & awaiting reply.. they should take faster action as she is soon approaching 1 year mark of her diagnosis & latest MRI revealed that the tumor has started to grow again

Angelika R (143)
Tuesday December 3, 2013, 10:46 am
Exactly, Krish! and we can figure it will take a good while longer to have the other half of needed sigs for the goal-precious time, perhaps wasted!
Lauren had a special website/blog (wordpress is for everyone's use!) with such a letter prepared-that is what they should also do. Not sufficient to have FB as ONLY contact, too many are not on FB!

Not yet checked just now.. I even sent them a link to this post.. Due to no public page.. We do not know whether they have contacted FDA already or not.. What their previous attempts were etc.. I will keep monitoring their FB page for any further developments..

Very good! thx, good job :) as serious and urgent as this issue is, chances are-if they're smart- they will have contacted FDA as well. But still more impact if MANY write to FDA!
