A Wholehearted Thank You
It has been another incredible fortnight for the campaign. Last week’s Sunday Times featured a fantastic letter of support for our campaign.
I was overwhelmed to find that Professor Stephen Hawking, Sir Bradley Wiggins, Tom and Sarah Parker Bowles were amongst the many notable people to add their names to the letter.
I cannot thank enough our supporters across the academic, patient and political spheres. In particular I’d like to thank Emily and Nick Crossley, The Duchenne Children’s Trust, and Alex and Andy Johnson, Joining Jack, for helping us contact some of these excellent supporters.
Our e-petition now has over 2,000 signatures, in no small part due to the excellent social media activity we’ve had. I gather even Peter Serafinowicz gave us a ReTweet (for you twitter novices out there, this is a good thing).
Keep an eye on our website for further updates, and for those of you based in Oxford, tune in to BBC Radio Oxford on Monday for the morning drive time as Professor Kevin Talbot will be discussing our campaign. I also recommend you read our latest blog contribution from Oli Rayner. He makes what is a challenging and complicated subject very approachable.
The attention the campaign has recently received demonstrates the consensus on this issue. Our collective voices shout louder than the individual, and it is comforting to know that I am not alone in my mission.
With best wishes
