Keeping Canada Alive

A single mother in Hamilton, whose premature baby was born at only 26 weeks gestation, waits alone as doctors prepare her tiny son for surgery. A former Richmond high school athlete who weighs almost 400 pounds hopes to change his life with bariatric surgery to reduce his stomach size. In Quebec’s far north, a Cree doctor wages her own battle against Canada’s First Nations diabetes epidemic. A profoundly disabled young woman in Wolfville finds ways to live her day to the fullest. And in Vancouver, man’s best friend participates in a clinical trial to detect a life-threatening superbug, while a woman fearing heart failure checks into Emergency.
