February 27 Courage of the Caregiver
Host Anthony Germain introduces us to courageous caregivers like Cecile Desjarlais of Winnipeg who has to do everything for her 19-year-old brain damaged son, and is only complaining now that the Manitoba government has taken back a small, but vital, service in his care. Then there's Dave Zito and his wife Natalie Labonte in Ottawa who plan to raise their smaller than average daughter to the greatest heights. Brenda Hardiman of Halifax raises the alarm on short sighted government policies that are putting her daughter at risk in the same way as Ashley Smith, who died in prison. June Goforth's mom is suing the Saskatchewan government for her daughter's death, and Kristin Millar says she's alive today thanks to her caregivers, and the donors of her new heart.
