TORONTO - Little Madi Vanstone expressed frustration Tuesday over the government's failure to provide her with life-saving medication.

The 12-year-old Beeton girl, who suffers from cystic fibrosis, and her mother Beth, went to Queen's Park to call on the provincial government would listen to their plea for the drug, Kalydeco.

"I've already said everything I can," said Madi, adding any previous progress to obtain government funding for the drug seems to have stalled. "I just have to keep counting on them to make the decision now."
