A local father is pleading for the Australian Government to help save his daughters life, by fighting to have a lifesaving drug put on the PBS to treat his daughter's cystic fibrosis.
The medication (named Orkambi) doesn't come at an affordable price, coming at a cost of $250,000 per person a year.
Vincent Swartz and his daughter, Sabrina, are calling for the Bundaberg community to rally behind them by making a submission to have the life-saving drug put on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.
The same disease took her sister, Jessica, in 2018 when she was 18.
Submissions close 5pm on June 6. To make a submission, go to https://bit.ly/1m2nnE2
