CBC Docs POV Sickboy New

Follow 29-year-old yoga instructor Jeremie Saunders as he lives openly with cystic fibrosis (CF) and looks for ways to remove the stigma attached to chronic illness and disease. Jeremie has grown up in Halifax dealing with CF, with a daily routine that involves using an atomizer and taking dozens of prescription pills. But he keeps a positive outlook and chooses to openly talk about his disease and its challenges. The film traces the efforts by him and his two closest friends, Brian Stever and Taylor MacGillivray, to create SICKBOY, an irreverent Internet radio podcast aimed at changing the way people view serious illness like cancer, depression and epilepsy.
