Tune in this evening or set your VCR’s at 8P.M ET on CBC News Network as they will be re-broadcasting 65_RedRoses.
65_RedRoses is a Canadian documentary that takes an unflinching look into the life of Eva Markvoort as she battles a fatal genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis (CF). At 23, Eva needs a double lung transplant to live. Unable to be around other patients with the same disease, Eva turns to the internet where she forms a strong connection with two American girls in different stages of CF. As the film follows Eva on her journey to getting new lungs, we witness how her online friendship with Meg and Kina withstands the tests of both time and distance.
Unfortunately, Eva lost her battle against Cystic Fibrosis on March 27, 2010.
Eva’s personal blog, where she says her final goodbyes and her heart-wrenching efforts to simply breath are here:
