The Meaning of True Love.The Saatchi Bill for Cancer Cure

Tomorrow I am embarking on a journey from Somerset to London. One of the most important I’ve ever done – to discuss the Saatchi Bill.

I have been to London on many occasions, and quite a few times since we have moved here, for one reason or another. On a number of occasions I have passed the imposing buildings that line the banks of the River Thames just next to Westminster Bridge. The Houses of Parliament.

I’ve always wanted to go in. If not to try and make changes happen, at least to have a look! And so, tomorrow I get the chance to do both.

Last week I received an invitation – which landed up in my junk mail (thank goodness I check through this!) – to the Houses of Parliament from Liz Scarff working on behalf of Lord Maurice Saatchi. I was in disbelief. Why would they want to invite someone like me? What could I do? Then, when Chris Mosler from Thinly Spread messaged me via Twitter and asked me whether I was coming, I realised. I understood that people who have been affected by this awful disease, who knew the effects on the sufferer and their loved ones and, probably most important of all, had a presence…a voice…that they used on a regular basis, could help push this into the forefront of people’s minds.  It reminded me of one of my favourite life quotes: ‘It’s not about the cards you’re dealt, but how you play the hand’.

Lord Saatchi lost his wife, novelist Josephine Hart, over two years ago to Ovarian Cancer. Reading this article in the Telegraph from April this year it is not only easy to see how much his loved and adored his wife and how desperate he was to save her from her dreadful suffering, it also shows what he, as the helpless person looking on, had to go through. The frustrations of watching the Doctors do what they could within the confines of what they were able to do without the fear of litigation breathing down their neck. One doctor gave him some words of encouragement in light of his proposals  – ‘This is important because one patient can change the world’. Lord Saatchi decided that patient should be Josephine.

And so he is campaigning for a change in the law of medical practice. He wants to make sure that Doctors get the chance to make innovating changes using new ideas without fear and worry, to encourage and protect them so that they can find the breakthroughs that so many different diseases need so that cures can be found. Another quote comes to mind: ‘If we do what we’ve always done, then we’ll get what we’ve always got’.

How can we find new ways, new cures if the people best qualified to do this have their hands tied? The bloggers attending tomorrows event have all been given information surrounding the Saatchi bill, formerly known as the Medical Innovation Bill, which will be put to the House of Commons this Wednesday by Michael Ellis MP.

Once the Bill has been passed,doctors, patients and judges will have much greater clarity as to what is negligent and dangerous practice by clinicians and what is careful and sensible innovation.

This will have two effects.

  1.  It will allow good doctors who have the best interests of their patients at heart to deviate away from standard procedures and  innovate, safely and with the protection of the law – as long as what they plan to do follows a clear set of actions.
  2.  It will clearly expose the doctor who acts alone and in a reckless way. Courts will be able to adjudicate on good and bad clinical behavior.

At the moment Doctors are too scared of deviating from evidence-based medicine, as a result this is stifling any new innovations. My job tomorrow is see if Lord Saatchi’s argument to introduce this bill is the right decision and then come back here to tell you what is happening and how you can help by letting your MPs know that you support the Saatchi Bill in a bid for change.

So you see, this isn’t just any visit to the Houses of Parliament…it is to hear a man talk about how he intends to play the cards he was dealt for the love of a woman he lost.

My Mum has suffered the blow of breast cancer twice and had a mastectomy nearly two years ago. I had a lump scare last December which I had investigated. I also supported Emma Day with the Shoulder to Shoulder to Day campaign. Cancer has touched us all in one form or another. Please leave your comments below with your experiences of cancer and how it has affected you. A story shared by you may just help to make the change we need to find a cure and encourage other people to support too.

You can follow developments on Twitter @SaatchiBill and #SaatchiBill

    Do you know that there is a great Herbal doctor who can cure any deadly disease. Like Cancer, Hiv, syphilis, madness, low spam count e.t.c. Well my main reason why i am writing this right now is to inform the whole world about the great deeds, Dr. Ariba did for me. I was diagnosed of this deadly disease in the year 2000 ever since then i was taking my medications, until i met the great spell caster, though i never believed in spell. I saw many testimonies on how a great spell caster cured their deadly diseases. I contacted him through his phone number. I called him, he asked me to send him my email, which i did. He gave me a form to fill, I filled it and send it back to him. He told me that his god’s required some items in which he will use in casting a curing spell on me. I don’t know where to find the items he required. He told me that the only alternative is for of to send him the money, then he can help me to purchase the items from the items sellers. I promised myself to do anything to get cured. I sent him the money. He bought the items and casted a curing spell on me. Two day later he asked me to go for check-up, when i did the check-up i was tested HIV Negative. If you passing through hardship and you need a way out, kindly contact him via his email on dr.aribaspelltemple@outlook.com or call his number on +2348163979933

    Special thanks go to God almighty for using dr. oraede in curing my Cancer disease, I was having a lung cancer and doctor told me that I have two years to live, that news brought sadness into my life, I was depressed, don’t know what to do. One faithful day I saw a testimony on how a spell caster cured a lady, who is called Rachael Mark, due to her testimony the man is a great man, quickly I copied his email, then I contacted him and he asked me not to bother myself that all my problems are over. I was happy to hear such words, he told me to buy some items, though I couldn’t find the items myself he asked me to send down the money to buy the items for me, faithfully I sent him the money he bought the items and prepared a cure for me. He told me that he is going to send the cure through courier delivery service, I paid to the courier delivery service then, I got the cure, he instructed me on how I will take the cure. I took the cure and I was freed from the cancer, I went for scanning, cancer was no longer there. I am very grateful for what he did for me. If you have any disease you can contact him via email on dr.oraedespellhome@hotmail.com, if you don’t have an email you can contact him through his mobile phone number on +2348161879468.

    I hope it all went well for you today. I lost my mother – she had breast cancer, a mastectomy, but it spread to her lymph nodes, through her bones (I believe) and to her liver. I was only 20 and my brother 14. My nan also died from Cancer 6 months later.

    Let’s hope this new bill can be passed and Doctors can help people more.

    Best of luck for this important trip, V. My NCT friend discovered days after having her second child that she had Breast Cancer, and had to start treatments immediately, and thus also was unable to breast feed her baby as she had her first. She has been through many rounds of chemo, operations, and it is not all great news. She was told to decide herself whether to have a single or double mastectomy – an incredibly hard choice as a woman of course. I would say however in regards to the apparently blasé attitude of nursing/medical staff, that for some – not all – this is a way of protecting themselves in order from the emotions in order to be able to do their job, otherwise it would be utterly overwhelming. I think there is some room still for a bit more humanity and sympathy, but knowing my sister as a medic, as well as other close friends, and how cold the approach can appear to be, I’ve come to understand why. It’s not an excuse, but a reason. I hope that this important day tomorrow goes some way to helping to give patients the choice to access a wider degree of options for their care, but most of all that the advice and support for what they go through is paramount. Good luck. xxx

    I’ll be watching the developments of this closely Vicky. My Mum was definitely failed by the current system and was running scared when she had most of her treatments. She wasn’t given half the information she needed to make an informed choice. Lord Saatchi’s article brought so many painful memories back. I remember talking to my Mum about the awful chemo sessions she endured and the almost blasé attitude of the nursing staff around her, emotionally cut off and to some degree unmoved by her suffering. My one concern in all this is that it will be a chance to open the door for Big Pharma to make more money off the back of these new innovations rather than making sure patients get the right choices & treatment given their own set of personal circumstances. We need to think so much farther outside the box with cancer treatments and that means we need to also think outside of convention too. There are often many other options out there but if they don’t make money they are pushed aside. I’m skeptical but hopeful all at once with this bill. Good luck tomorrow and as I said on Chris’ post, give those who are no longer with us a voice and the hope that their deaths weren’t in vain xx

      I think you’ve made some really valid points here regarding the nursing staff – my Mum has had similar experiences throughout her treatment. I also share your concerns about the big money and the patients getting lost in amongst this. I feel certain that Lord Saatchi has a big voice and is surrounding himself with people who have a similar one out here in social media land! I will do my best tomorrow, thank you so much for your support xx
