North by Northwest A Callanish Christmas: When Grief Comes for the Holidays

Tragedy and loss, unfortunately, do not take holidays. Christmas can be a difficult and emotional time of year for those dealing with the death of a loved one or many other kinds of loss. What can we do when grief is taking up space at Christmas time? This CBC Radio documentary by Vancouver journalist Pamela Post introduces us to Callanish, a program by a non-profit group of health professionals in Vancouver that provides retreats and healing support for people with cancer and their families. Her documentary features two people struggling to find new meaning this Christmas or just get through it.
