Counterfeit Drugs Harm Real People

We're Collecting Their Stories

Protecting the safety of America's drug supply is about protecting human life. When we compromise the security of America's drug supply, we endanger patients. Sometimes people forget that these policy debates affect real people, but we at PSM never do.

Below you will find the stories of patients and family members that have been victims of a weakened drug supply chain. 
 Note: The patients and family members who appear on this page have not been compensated by PSM for appearing here.

Sorry, we couldn't find any posts. Please try a different search.
