We Can't Wait 

Fund ustekinumab for New Zealanders with severe Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. 

Over 20,000 New Zealanders suffer from Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, one of the highest per capita rates in the world. Despite this, NZ doesn't provide funding for this standard, mainstream medication, funded in Australia and throughout the Western world. This medication has the potential to  offer those with the most aggressive disease a life without chronic pain, bloody diarrhoea, repeated hospitalisations and life-altering surgeries, and the hope  for a fulfilling work and family life.

Can't Wait?  Don't Wait!

The CCNZ toilet card clearly states that the holder has a medical condition and needs to use a toilet quickly.  Although it does not guarantee you access to a toilet, most places you visit will be willing to help you.  The card is a small, credit sized card, designed to fit easily into your purse, wallet or pocket.  You can show the card when you're out shopping and socialising and it may help you gain access to a toilet.
If you would like a “I Cant Wait" toilet card please email us and we will send out an application form for your medical provider to complete or download your application here.


Do you want to support "I Can't Wait!" cardholders?

Placing a CCNZ sticker in the window of your business that you recognise the "I Can't Wait" card can truly change lives.

Honouring the card allows people with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and other medical condition to use your facilities in the event a cardholder needs one urgently.

This simple act of kindness gives people with medical conditions the confidence to leave home without the fear of having an accident in public. It gives them the opportunity to do what most of us take for granted: the opportunity to leave home, to shop, to meets friends, and to live a normal life.

Holders of the "I Can't Wait" card have gone through the process of applying for the card which requires their doctor's documentation that they have a condition for which the card is necessary.

CCNZ recognises and publicises participating business on our webpage and social media platforms. Let people know that your business is making a difference in the lives of members of your community.  Click here to find out who they are.

For more information please email us.
