Her Life Is In Your Hands. People With Cystic Fibrosis Need Access to Life-Changing Medicine!
Like every new mom, Kim dreams about the future for her child. And on bad days, when Kim struggles to breathe — she worries that Charlie's future might not include her. Sign PetitionSign Petition
She's one of thousands of Canadians waiting and hoping for a chance to access specialty drugs that could change her future with cystic fibrosis (CF). For Kim and other loved ones living with CF — it may be their only hope for a better life, for more time with their families, for what is important.
However, Canada's drug reimbursement system is broken and Canadians with rare diseases, like CF, are unable to access the medications they need.
There are nearly 40 CF disease-modifying drugs in the development pipeline but without a strategy in which Canadian provinces and territories work with the federal government to improve access to rare disease medications, Canadians with CF may never be able to access these drugs.
That's why Cystic Fibrosis Canada is calling for the creation of a pan-Canadian rare disease strategy, which would include a drug review process that fairly assesses drugs for rare diseases, including critical drugs for cystic fibrosis.
This election, we need to do whatever it takes for greater access to life-saving medicines. For Kim and other loved ones living with cystic fibrosis — it may be their only hope for a better life, for more time with their families, for what is important.
Sign our petition to tell candidates that we need to fix the broken health care system and make drugs accessible to all Canadians living with cystic fibrosis.
