‘We did it!’: Cystic Fibrosis sufferer ‘shed tears’ after Trikafta got approved
Cystic fibrosis sufferer Jess Ragusa has reacted to the news of Trikafta being approved on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.
Jess shared her story with Jim Wilson a month ago.
“I’m very proud of what I’ve done and been able to achieve,” she told Jim.
“When we saw Mr Hunt yesterday say those words… it was like a weight lifted off our shoulders.”
As of this Friday, Jess will be able to get the drug for $6.80 opposed to previously paying $21,375 a month.
