Sisters and brothers,
As part of our national campaign for universal pharmacare, we have just launched our powerful new video telling the story of Judy Pope, a Cambridge, Ontario woman forced to make an impossible choice: pay for medication that would prolong her life, or keep her family’s finances and home intact.
A cancer-fighting medication had kept Judy Pope alive for five years, but when her husband Gary’s health insurance switched to a new provider, a cap on coverage meant the Popes were faced with medication costs of more than $3,000 a month.
Our video chronicles Judy Pope’s painful choice and encourages Canadians to add their voice to our online petition.
Please help us promote this phase of our campaign by posting the video on your websites, sharing it on social media and showing it at your events.
