7 April 2016 Helliniko
Yet Again, Cancer Patients in Desperation at Laiko Hospital
Yes, it has happened before. And on 7 April 2016, for the second Thursday in a row, no chemotherapy could take place at Laiko Hospital (A Greek public hospital) because they were simply out of the medicines required for it. These delays not only worsen a patients health, they are life threatening. We call upon the Ministry of Health to find an immediate solution to this problem. This has happened twice since January at Laiko Hosptial and has to be solved before we are mourning lost patients!
The Metropolitan Community Clinic at Helliniko and other organizations, such as the Association of Cancer Patients, Doctors (KEFI) of Athens, help with the drugs they can provide. Unfortunately, it is not enough. This problem has to be solved by the state. So let them fulfill their responsibilities.
