Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is another fatal genetic disease that belongs to our “invisible population” of folks who who have rare illnesses or disorders that are often overlooked by decision makers.
Since I was elected I have had the opportunity to meet with families and constituents affected by some of these. I wrote a letter to Minister Dix a little while back on the benefits of covering Trikafta for those living with CF. I am so pleased to see this update and I know many families in BC will be as well.
Our government has been able to boost funding for ALS treatment and research, and now Cystic Fibrosis. This is on top of increased support and funding for many major diseases, including heart disease and diabetes most recently. I will continue to support and advocate for policies that improve our healthcare and ensure a more fair and accessible coverage for all. Please continue to reach out to our office on areas that we can improve here.
