Winnipeg's Sarah Simpson-Yellowquill débuts film about surviving leukemia


Sarah Simpson-Yellowquill was diagnosed with leukemia when she was just fourteen years old. Doctors told her that, if she survived, she'd never walk again.
But not only did Ms. Simpson-Yellowquill defy the doctors' diagnosis -- she made a film about her experience. 
Her short film, "Yes I Can," screened last night at the Winnipeg Aboriginal Film Festival. Click LISTEN to hear Carol's interview with Sarah.
