I have a family member who has bowel cancer. He has just finished his last course of Chemo and has possibly months left to live.
He applied for DLA last year and was refused despite being in a wheelchair, 24 hour care from his wife and many other things. He was refused.
he had his tribunal last week, he was again refused.
So maybe we all need to take a moment to remember that there are many many more people in much worse places than we are and that while we may not got DLA is the end of the world, really we have plenty of time to get the help we need.
I'm by no means belittling all that we all go though, I am just saying that if they refuse someone with Terminal Cancer, even under the special rules, then it is understandable why some of us struggle when we have an illness that is still very much an enigma to the medical profession itself.
