Sign the Petition to

Tanya Plibersek, Federal Minister for Health

After many many months of fighting, treating and looking for a cure, the Merhi family has uncovered one last option to save their father's life.

Michael Merhi requires sorafonib nexavar funded on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) for kidney cancer. It's an effective treatment however it costs over $20,000 a month and without it being covered on the PBS, this could be the end for Mr Merhi.

The family is not asking for money or handout. All they would like is enough awareness to get the attention of Tanya Plibersek, Federal Minister for Health, to have no option but to take notice and use her influence to help.

Please sign up to this cause and share with your friends and family.

What else can I do?

Jump onto Tanya Plibersek Facebook page and post "We need sorafonib nexavar funded on the PBS for kidney cancer - please #savemichaelmerhi"

This is the end of the line. Without sorafonib nexavar funded on the PBS, the family will not be able to afford the $20,000 monthly bill for this treatment and Michael Merhi's body will quickly shut down marking the end of Mr Merhi's life.
