Give Karis Life Saving Cystic Fibrosis drug - #Trikafta

0 have signed. Let’s get to 150,000!


My best friend Karis is very sick. She has cystic fibrosis and urgently needs a drug called Trikafta - but it’s currently only available in the US.

Karis’ lung function is at 16%, she has had bad infections since November and despite being in hospital for weeks on end her lungs are still struggling. Karis is only 32 with 3 beautiful children aged 3, 7 and 12 and she just isn't ready to leave them, she's still so young herself.

The drug isn’t available in the UK yet, but the drug company Vertex can supply it in certain cases on ‘compassionate grounds’. Sign this petition to ask that Karis is given this life-saving treatment!

Karis can’t have a lung transplant because she weighs only 32kg. She’s in severe constant pain and in a wheelchair. Currently she’s on 19 different medicines - over 50 tablets a day.

All she wants is to be there for her kids and spend time with them. They need their mum.

The Government must do all it can to get this drug approved in the UK, but meanwhile I’m calling for Karis to get access to it because it could save her life!

I'm pretty much begging everyone who sees this to please sign it please! We all need to make a stand together and fight for what's right and not wait for Cystic Fibrosis patients to be at the end of life until they are even considered the treatment on 'compassionate grounds' by Vertex. Every sign is massively appreciated ❤️
