CanCertainty: Campaign for Equal and Fair Cancer Treatment for All Canadians
Cancer patients in Ontario and the Atlantic provinces should not be systemically discriminated against simply because the cancer-fighting medication they need goes in their mouth (comes in a prescription pill bottle) instead of their arm (an intravenous line).
Universal funding of oral cancer drugs is the right thing to do. It's time to put an end to lengthy delays and patchwork solutions that leave some patients and their families with costly co-payments and deductibles to pay for the cost of cancer treatment. Canada's four Western provinces fully fund their oral cancer medications for all citizens. It's time for Ontario and the Atlantic provinces to do the same.
We invite you to join us in our campaign for fairness. It's time to end the uncertainty about funding – and provide certainty for all Canadians affected by cancer. CanCertainty!
Show your support. It's time and, by working together, we can resolve this issue for all Canadians.
