Shire Cares Patient Assistance & Support Program

At Shire we strive to be as brave as the people we help. One of the ways we can do that is by helping provide access to medicine for those with financial need. That’s why we created our patient assistance and support program, Shire Cares - to help you get the Shire medicines your physician has prescribed.
