LETTER Sooke mom pleads for Horgan to hear: her child requires meds they can’t afford and Pharmacare doesn’t cover — 13 Comments

  1. Please support this family and the small number of children in BC who desperately need access to canankinumab by signing our change.org petition to Minister Adrian Dix. For kids living with SJIA, this means thriving in the classroom and playing sports outdoors, rather than being housebound in a wheelchair, completely isolated from all the things that make up a person’s childhood.

  2. Problems believe arthitis is for old peaple. I am 55. Was diagnosed at 17, although i was born with psoriatic arthitis and i am still fighting to get the meds i need. I will you better than the treatments i have recieved. Cortisone is not the answer. Good luck

  4. Omg poor child hope he gets the meds he neds so sad pharmacare shorts paitence every day not covering meds my son takes 3 athsma inhalours and predsone not fully covered things need to change especially for children who need meds no question should be covered not be making $ holding back on meds that are needed to make our children better

  5. Let’s hope Landon is the child that gets this medication covered in BC.

    Since all other Province’s already have this in order, it’s over due!

  6. Here is what I have learned myself as a sufferer of Rhumatoid Arthritis’……. call the drug company that manufactures/distributes the drug, for they should be able to do something for you especially if that is the only drug that works for your son. Hope this helps

  7. Our children is the most important part of life .they are what keep this world a live an it doesn’t matter what it cost it shouldn’t stop us from protecting our future .darrel

  8. Please help this family. Our child was diagnosed with JRA. We were fortunate to have his medications covered. He was seen in Vancouver also covered. This is not right
