Patients Can Raise Big Voice!

I always have doubts about political advocacy. I wonder if it’s useful? Will politicians listen to the patients’ concerns? Are there any consequences for the cancer patients? Meanwhile, I’m fascinated by political advocacy. For the first time, I did political advocacy with several patients to urge the provincial government to allow cancer patients and immunocompromised patients to have the 2nd dose vaccine before the four months interval. As a result, the government did change the policy. I’m ecstatic. Please see the article below: https://lungcancer.net/living/raise-patient-voices

My friend HaoPei (斐皓) was a Stage 4 lung cancer patient, 38 years old. He passed away in early February 2020. These pictures were taken by him when he travelled in rural China after his diagnosis. 斐皓, 一路走好。
