A Heartfelt Petition
Rachelle Kelly says she owes her life to Dr. Peter Midgley. When the mother from Covehead was giving birth to newborn Levi, there was a complication that led to severe blood loss. Dr. Midgley was called in and after ten hours in the operating room, saved her life. Now Rachelle Kelly and Cory Jay have started a petition asking the provincial government to step in and convince the Island's only vascular surgeon NOT to leave the Island. Dr. Peter Midgley announced his resignation in January because he says he is overworked.
The CBC's Julia Cook visited with Rachelle Kelly and Cory Jay and newborn son Levi at their home in Covehead.
