My Life My Choice

We Can’t Wait’ campaign, striving to ensure that individuals with learning disabilities receive the timely care they deserve and live lives as long as anyone else’s.

Why “We Can’t Wait” Matters

  • People with learning disabilities often live much shorter lives—men by 23 years, women by 27 years, compared to those without learning disabilities.
  • They face challenges such as multiple health issues, misdiagnoses, and delayed medical appointments.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these challenges, doubling the death rate for individuals with learning disabilities since June 2020.
