e-1907 (National day)

Initiated by russell petiot from Calgary, Alberta

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • 1 in 5 Canadians will experience neuropathy in their lifetime;
  • Neuropathy has over one hundred causes including diabetes, chemotherapy treatment and hypothyroidism;
  • As of right now there is no cure for neuropathy and for a large number of people it is a chronic, debilitating condition with unpredictable pain leading to reduced mobility and independence;
  • Many people diagnosed with neuropathy find that the insurmountable pain and loss of identity result in serious mental health conditions that, in some cases, has led to loss of life; and
  • A Neuropathy Awareness Day will bring recognition to the impact this condition has on Canadian neuropathy sufferers and their families. There is no National Neuropathy Awareness Day in Canada currently.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, Neuropathy Sufferers of Canada, and friends, families, and allies of Neuropathy Sufferer, call upon the Government of Canada to ratify a National Neuropathy Awareness Day within Canada.
