ACT TODAY: Tell the provinces to cut the red tape and cover life-saving CF drugs now!

 

Hello,

Life-saving drugs for cystic fibrosis (CF) are available around the world — but here in Canada they are being held back by government red tape. We need your help to end the wait!

Transformational medications Orkambi and Kalydeco have been held up by the provinces for years, and without your help today, the “miracle drug” Trikafta could soon be tied up in the same red tape.

These drugs have the potential to improve lung function and reduce progression of symptoms, and Trikafta can significantly improve and lengthen lives – it’s the single biggest breakthrough in CF treatment history! Without immediate access to Trikafta and other CF drugs, people living with CF face more sickness, hospital visits and deaths.

This is unacceptable! You can help make life-saving CF medications available now. Sign our #CFCantWait petition and tell your province to end the wait!

Supporters like you helped us achieve the first milestone to bring Trikafta to Canada, and you can help us go further! By adding your name, you’ll join thousands of Canadians from coast-to-coast demanding that provincial governments make these drugs available for everyone who needs them.

While medications have been caught in red tape here at home, some Canadians have gone to the United States to save their loved ones. No Canadian should have to leave the country to access life-saving drugs!

As we head into May — Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month — will you help us reach our goal of 30,000 signatures by May 31st? Sign the petition and tell your province to end the wait for life-saving CF drugs.
