B.C. man denied provincial medical coverage after stroke in U.S.

David Chapman can't come home for badly-needed rehabilitation

David Chapman suffered a stroke in the U.S. and has been refused health coverage in his home province.
The family of a B.C. man who fought for his life in a U.S. hospital and made a remarkable recovery is now fighting the B.C. government to be able to bring him home.

"He's wasting away down there," said David Chapman's mother, Joan Dmytryshyn. "I will never give up. I want my boy back."

The 49-year-old Chapman was a consultant to the steel industry, who lived in Chilliwack, B.C., since he was a child. In December 2006, he traveled to Tustin, Calif., to visit his children, who had moved there with his ex-wife. While there, he suffered a massive brain hemorrhage, putting him on life support in a California hospital. His parents said they were told that if he survived, he might not be able to talk or even feed himself.
