today's action Save Jack's Life

The last effort to save 6-year old Jack Fowler may come from Care2 members like you.

Jack is suffering from a rare disease called Hunter Syndrome, and without treatment, the disease will cause permanent damage to Jack's organs, including the brain.

Shire Pharmaceuticals has the medicine that can treat and save Jack's life. However, when the Fowler family finally got their meeting with the CEO of Shire, it only lasted minutes. Their response? "We don't deal with patients or families."

For today's Daily Action, help us reach 75,000 signatures to convince Shire to help save Jack's life.

alternative action Cut Climate-Credit Incentives for Deforestation!

California's cap-and-trade program is now giving companies carbon credits to cut down old-growth forests. Older trees are crucial in trapping harmful carbon emissions. Companies should be penalized, not rewarded for destroying forests!

For today's Secondary Action, tell CA to cut climate-credit incentives for forest destruction!
