A GP has rallied more than 1200 doctors in her fight to bring a refugee dying of lung cancer from Nauru to Australia for palliative care.

Dr Sara Townend, who says she had to google how to write a complaint letter to the Australian Border Force, says the Government's plan for the 63-year-old known as Ali was "ridiculous and cruel".
