Four Ways You Can Help Get Access to Life-Saving CF Medicines Now

It’s CF Awareness Month! Help Canadians with cystic fibrosis access the miracle drug, Trikafta, ASAP!.

From the #CFcantwait Provincial Meeting Challenge, to the Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History, the cystic fibrosis community is hard at work pushing for access to critical CF medicines, fundraising, and setting personal challenges to go further for CF.

We need your help! Here are simple actions you can take right now to go further for people living with cystic fibrosis:

SIGN THE #CFCANTWAIT PETITION

Sign the #CFcantwait petition to tell your province that Canadians living with CF have waited too long for access to critical CF drugs. Help us reach our goal of 30,000 signatures by May 31.

The life-saving CF drugs Orkambi and Kalydeco have been held up by provincial governments for years. Without your help, access to the miracle drug, Trikafta, could soon be delayed by the same red tape. That’s why we’re asking you to sign our petition to tell your province to make CF drugs accessible now. We’ll be using your signatures to tell elected officials how much support there is for access to life-saving CF medicines in their ridings!

CONNECT WITH YOUR PROVINCIAL ELECTED OFFICIAL

Participate in the #CFcantwait Provincial Meeting Challenge and arrange a meeting with your provincial elected official and spread our urgent message that access to critical CF medicines, including Trikafta, can’t wait.

From April to June, Cystic Fibrosis Canada is providing tools, templates, resources and specialized support to equip you to meet with your provincial elected officials and spread our urgent message: #CFcantwait!

OR

If meeting with your provincial elected official is not for you, use our quick and easy online tool to send a letter to your provincial elected official telling them that Canadians living with cystic fibrosis can’t continue to wait for access to life-saving CF drugs.

DONATE AND RAISE FUNDS TO FUEL THE FIGHT

We are so grateful to every participant, donor, volunteer, advocate, community member and partner who showed their unwavering support and determination. Together, we surpassed our goal of raising $1 million in one month and raised a total to date of $2.2 million and counting to help Canadians with CF live longer, healthier lives. 

Your donations and fundraising dollars will support ongoing research, healthcare and urgent advocacy work to get access to cystic fibrosis medicines, including the ‘miracle drug’ Trikafta – a drug that can change the lives of 90% of Canadians living with cystic fibrosis.

If you want to keep pushing further for Canadians living with cystic fibrosis, fundraising and donation pages will remain open throughout the summer, until August 31st. 

SHARE THESE ACTIONS WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY

We need as much support as we can get to make sure provincial elected officials hear our urgent message that #CFcantwait!
