But since the treatment is not yet approved by the FDA, McKenzie canít access it without a "compassionate use" exemption. The FDA has made 471 exemptions for this treatment to date.

So what is the hold up? They have given exemptions before, the parents want it, this is a 12 year old child with no other hope.

We have other pills that are thrown onto the market for the masses only to be recalled later for causing death and heart conditions. It isn't like the FDA is so perfect or always so "safe". When it comes to making money it is done asap, but a drug to help only a few drags on forever. I'm tired of the double standards in this Country.

previously signed, now noted. We have to spread the word about Dr Burzynski's work, so many lives could be saved. Here is a ink of a short video:

it's only a small introduction to his work but it is already very informative, you can also find a full movie on youtube. Thank you Nancy for sharing this petition
