A massive demonstration has requested this weekend in Madrid to the administration, the financing of medicines Orkambi and Symkevi to save lives of people with this disease.
The Cystic Fibrosis Association of the Balearics and the Respiralia Foundation, involved in this protest, have been present with some members.
