Sarah Jessica Parker voices her opinion on Mylan & Healthcare.
Everybody knows that health is critical. Your health is your life and it’s never something to joke with (which is why when someone doesn’t go to the doctor because of money, I tend to get upset). Money is never an excuse to just ‘give up on life,’ right? And sometimes the world makes it seem like everything and it’s not, it doesn’t buy complete you as a person.
Health and money shouldn’t every be against one another. (I’m one to think healthcare shouldn’t cost and that we should be focusing on preventative care, rather than just putting a band-aid on every issue we encounter). And I’m speculating that’s why Sarah Jessica Parker is standing up for the rights of not only her son but those other people that need a louder voice.
Mylan, a company that produces EpiPen (a life-saving medication that’s used with an allergic reaction, which is also known as anaphylaxis) has raised it’s price. The Bloomberg News reported that the price continues to increase over the years and that’s leaving people disappointed—especially patients and mothers of children who have to carry an EpiPen with them when ever they leave the house and even inside their home.
Sarah Jessica Parker took to Instagram and wrote a message with hope saying:
“I’m left disappointed, saddened and deeply concerned by Mylan’s actions. I do not condone this decision and I have ended my relationship with Mylan as a direct result of it,” Sarah Jessica wrote on Instagram. Her son, James Wilke, has a terribly severe peanut allergy, and SJP had partnered with Mylan for a campaign at the beginning of this year. She continued “I hope they will seriously consider the outpouring of voices of those millions of people who are dependent on the device, and take swift action to lower the cost to be more affordable for whom it is a life-saving necessity.”
