Woman who recently won her fight for cancer drug dies12th May 2010
Nikki Phelps, who campaigned to be allowed to receive the drug Sunitinib from NHS West Kent trust, has died.
The mother of two won an appeal last month to get the trust to fund the cost of her treatment for glandular cancer. The trust had originally refused her request for the drug as NICE had not approved it to treat her condition. James Thallon, the trust's medical director, said: "Everyone at NHS West Kent would like to offer our deepest sympathy and condolences to the family of Mrs Phelps."
