Without Spinraza, Zahra will die

By signing this petition, you are literally saving Zahra’s life.
Zahra, a 6 years old girl, has been diagnosed with a rare disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy ("SMA"), which is a terminal, degenerative disease, that takes away a child’s ability to walk, stand, sit, eat, breathe, and even swallow.
HOWEVER, a new medication, SPINRAZA™ (nusinersen), not only can stop the disease, it will restore the previous degeneration. Unfortunately, Spinraza is VERY expensive, costing $750,000 USD!
Zahra's story published on the Wall Street Journal:
All you have to do in order to help Zahra is to simply sign this petition requesting Biogen, the company which makes SPINRAZA™, to ease Zahra's access to this medication by either reducing the price or any other way possible to save her life.
Please follow Zahra on Twitter:
Dear Biogen company, please gift Zahra the compassionate use of SPINRAZA™ (nusinersen) or at lower prices before it is too late. Please support Zahra's family so that this little girl can start her treatment as soon as possible. No kid in this world deserves to be left to gradually or eventually die. Please help saving Zahra's life.
