Film Documents Need For Catatstrophic Drug Coverage

A short film documenting the experience of two people who rely on catastrophic drugs is getting a positive reception.

The idea came about after the Canadian Cancer Society and 20 other groups saw a need to draw attention to the plight of New Brunswickers suffering with cancer and other serious medical problems who rely on these medications.

Senior Manager for Public Isssues Ellen Snider tells CHSJ News the film shows two personal stories that you have to see to believe.

She says it's the first time people are reacting emotionally to this issue and they people are vulnerable and the government should take care of it.
