pharmaceutical companies and senator

Medication used to treat the most common form of childhood leukemia is in short supply, adding to the largest nationwide shortage of critical lifesaving hospital medications in nearly a decade.

All five pharmaceutical companies that make the injection drug methotrexate, which treats acute lymphoblastic leukemia by slowing the growth of cancer cells, have either slowed and stopped manufacturing of the drug, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The companies have cited high demand or manufacturing delays as reasons for the shortage.

If the shortage continues, physicians and pharmacists fear thousands of children will be left without lifesaving treatment.

Please everyone. By signing this petition many lives could be saved by encouraging the Pharmaceutical companies to continue to produce methotrexate.

For all of our little miracles and there family's this is a heart breaking time.Please sign and share this petition because this injection drug is what helps ( ALL) patients have a wonderful long life to look forward to.

With out this powerful injection alot of hope will be lost and the high survival rate for all childhood cancers could be lost.
