A Culture of Caring

We can get ahead of this illness and stop others from being gripped by it in two ways: as a culture and through the government. I believe that if I had grown up in a home that empowered, encouraged, and facilitated a sense of self-worth that I would not have been vulnerable to the illness. I was not set-up to be resilient to the illness. We need, as a culture in Canada, to take care of each other.
