  • The Wellington Advertiser - Compassionate funding approved for Palmerston child with rare condition
    government to take action and ensure that Jasper More begin the treatment he requires immediately In addition Darren added that family and friends who wanted to support them began sending emails phone calls tweets and messages to their local MPPs the Ministry of Health and the premier s office He believes those messages made a difference because shortly after the family was accepted for compassionate care access for funding We are very relieved and grateful he said However he was sad that it came down to having to campaign in order to obtain the health care funding While he recognized Wilkinson s comments that the health care system is designed for the average Joe there was already a precedent to allow the funding He cited the example of the parents of 7 year old Isaac McFadyen residents of Campbellford who successfully lobbied the Ontario government to fund his expensive enzyme replacement therapy when he was diagnosed in 2006 It too required a very public campaign to secure funding Isaac has been receiving his weekly infusions at The Hospital For Sick Children in Toronto for five years Prior to starting treatment Isaac suffered from severe compression of his spinal cord that required the removal of a piece of his skull and a portion of his vertebrae In addition he endured numerous other surgeries to treat complications of the advancing disease in his body Since beginning his weekly infusions Isaac s liver and spleen have reduced back down to a normal size his rate of growth has increased his heart function has improved and his heart valve disease has stabilized In addition Isaac has had no further progression of his bone and joint disease airway disease and compression of his spinal cord Andrew McFadyen Isaac s father believes that progression of the disease has virtually halted in his son allowing him to lead a normal active lifestyle The McFadyen s started a charity in 2006 called The Isaac Foundation and have been raising money to fund innovative research projects that aim to find a cure for MPS VI To date the charity has given over 240 000 to research projects worldwide In addition the charity works nationally and internationally to advocate for and support families dealing with MPS VI Elizabeth Witmer Progressive Conservative MPP for Kitchener Waterloo agrees She worked tirelessly to advocate for the McFadyen family while they were fighting for Isaac s treatment in 2006 Witmer said We fought this battle once already for little Isaac and we ve witnessed the staggering results this treatment has brought to his quality of life Jasper More deserves the same opportunities and hope that this life sustaining treatment will provide him Since receiving this diagnosis we ve been sick with guilt grief and worry Our world will never be the same said Jasper s mother Pam The only comforting factor since the diagnosis has been that unlike other types of MPS type VI has a treatment available We want to be able to
