PharmaCare covers treatment

From Elizabeth Williamson, who requested that PhamaCare cover a cheaper, more effective drug for her rare skin disease, but was refused.  Here's what happened the day after her story aired:

"Guess who I got a phone message from on Wednesday?  The director of Special Authority (PharmaCare).  I spoke with her yesterday, they are offering me coverage of  the rituximab!

...Thank you both and the CBC so much for your support on this issue, I have gotten a lot of positve feedback and appreciation within the pemphigus community."
