BREAKING NEWS! TREATMENT APPROVED IN ONTARIO!

TREATMENT APPROVED! ONTARIO CHILD FIRST TO RECEIVE PROVINCIAL FUNDING/REIMBURSEMENT FOR VIMIZIM!

We have some very exciting news to share. A few months ago, we told you about little Ayub and our quest to have his treatment approved by the Ontario Government.

I’m thrilled to announce that Ayub will be the first person in Canada to receive full reimbursement for VIMIZIM, a new therapy approved by Health Canada in July and the first and only front-line treatment for Morquio A Syndrome (MPS IVA). This will greatly impact Ayub’s quality of life, and I’m proud to have played a small role in ensuring approval was forthcoming for him.

I’ll post some updates once treatment begins, and will continue working and advocating for the rest of the patients across Canada who need access to this therapy.
