A DOTING aunt is appealing for readers of The Star to sign a petition urging the Government to invest more funds into cystic fibrosis research because her young nephew lives with the disease.
Rosie Skitt from Jordanthorpe is calling on people to sign their names in support of her nephew Joseph Rodgers, aged just two.
She said: “I cannot express how helpful this would be as it doesn’t require any donation and takes just a minute of a person’s time.
“If everybody that purchased a paper did it and told a relative I’m sure we could boost the number of people that have already signed it by a significant amount.”
