The Petition

We believe that everyone who relies on urinary catheters for their health and independence should be able to make their product decision without the burden of out-of-pocket expenses.  Adequate funding not only impacts medical factors like urinary tract infection susceptibility and general urethral health, but equally influences comfort, ease of use and dignity.
