Online e-form ‘card’ launched by popular request
Labour general secretary Jennie Formby this morning published news that she is being treated for breast cancer. Typically, she made the NHS and the country’s need for a Labour government the primary focus of her announcement.
Ms Formby has been the target of shameless attacks by the media and a small subset of right-wing Labour MPs, but has transformed Labour’s processes and transparency since she accepted the post for the good of the movement last year. In spite of the attacks, she kept the news of her illness quiet as long as possible rather than look for sympathy or use it to shame her attackers and has not reduced her workload beyond the absolute minimum necessary.
Since publishing news of her announcement, the SKWAWKBOX has received numerous requests to make available a way for well-wishers to pass on their thanks and support. The SKWAWKBOX has therefore created a short online ‘card’ for that purpose here.
Please sign and share to let Ms Formby know the solidarity she enjoys from Labour members and supporters.
