Keeping Canada Alive

An Ottawa cancer patient undergoes the removal and reconstruction of her remaining breast. A Montreal psychiatrist administers electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) to a patient with debilitating depression. In Vancouver, a doctor tends to an immigrant family from Iraq whose elderly mother is suffering from PTSD. A First Nations man who lost part of his foot because of diabetes places hopes for a fuller recovery in a visiting healer in Fort Qu’Appelle. And two years after a heartbreaking stillbirth, a young Kamloops mother faces her fears as she prepares to deliver another baby in the same ward.
