Canadians living with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) still cannot access drugs that could give them their lives.
Statistics show that 1 in 3600 people are born with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) in Canada.
My daughter, Katie (in front), living with CF, has been a tireless warrior all her life pursuing her dreams and passions of healing animals, doing meaningful work, contributing to society. Now, without access to these new drugs she cannot live fully. Without these drugs and better treatment options her future is uncertain and she continues to struggle to just eat and breathe.
Life-changing medications like Trikafta are currently available in other countries. In Canada, Trikafta was just approved at the end of June 2021. Cystic fibrosis sufferers continue to wait as other developed countries have been using these treatments for years. We are still losing young people while we wait. We need our government and Health Canada to add Trikafta to the provincial and territorial formularies now. Let's get Trikafta into the hands of the 90% of Cystic Fibrosis Canadians so they can breathe today. The US had the coverage ready to go once the drug was approved, what is holding us back? Wear a shirt and show your support for the #righttobreathe in Canada.
Stop stalling Canada - the clock is ticking for Canadians suffering with Cystic Fibrosis. Let's find a way as a country to get this medication into the hands of Canadians now - like my daughter, Katie. With every purchase of a shirt, a portion of the proceeds will go to Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
You can really help by signing and sharing this petition to our Canadian Government, Health Canada, and our Minister of Health, to get access today. Every second counts when you can't breathe. Please sign and share! Every signature matters and you can help show our children that Canada cares.
Be a cystic fibrosis warrior and purchase an art shirt with black art print on either a white or grey t-shirt in either a men's, unisex or women's tank top. Front side print only on white, pink or grey only. With the sale of any shirt a donation will be made to cystic fibrosis Canada.
Be a cystic fibrosis warrior and purchase a two-sided colour art shirt or tank top printed on a variety of fabric colours (see samples at the bottom of the page). Printed with full colour art on the front and the hashtags #cfwarrior #cystic fibrosis #cfgetloud #cdnhealth #trikafta now on the back.
My art shirt designs are inspired by my daughter Katelyn, and other Canadians, currently suffering with cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. At present, there is no cure. The degree of cystic fibrosis severity differs from person to person, however, the persistence and ongoing destruction of lungs and the inability to digest fats will eventually lead to death in the majority of people with CF. It is estimated that one in every 3,600 children born in Canada has CF.
More than 4,300 Canadian children, adolescents, and adults currently live with cystic fibrosis in Canada.
The owl represents the change our Canadian healthcare system has just made by granting the use of Trikafta in Canada. This drug could shield 90% of CF Warriors from this disease progression and save them from drowning. Even though Canada just recently approved Trikafta, we continue to wait. Every second counts to someone who can't breathe. By purchasing and wearing these shirts you can make a difference. Together we can build awareness of our warriors plight and show them we support #therighttobreathe and to get #Trikaftanow into Canada.
These shirts are printed with by a Canadian company, Art of Where. Printed on a selection of fabrics by Bella Canvas, Milltex and NextLevel that support factories in the US and overseas that use ethical and fair practices. Easy wear cotton fabrics for men, women and children in a variety of colours. 50% of the proceeds of any sale of any #CFWarrior t-shirt, after expenses, will go to Cystic Fibrosis Canada. This just might be your favourite t-shirt or tank top. Thank you for your support and for becoming a #CFWarrior. Let's make my fantasy art a reality.
