I am sure others on here would be able to give you better advise, but that sounds awful. I would imagine you need to get back in contact with them ASAP and tell them you want to appeal. At least get the ball rolling.

thank you pinkpig where do i go to start the ball rolling is it atos or dwp xx


I would start with your MP, look up his website, which should give you his email address. Put the whole thing before him, including your full name, address and N.I number. Tell him about the stage 3 cancer and point out the inhumanity of the current system.

Part of yor MP's job is looking after the interests of his constituents, after all, he wants your vote, let him earn it.

Also, get back to DWP, appealing the decision.

Cheers, Midori
