Please take a moment to read this story. I know that I can certainly relate!

My heart was really pumping reading this story - I can relate to the momentary panic that can set in with situations such as this. It's important to realize that others are sharing the same everyday life scenarios and we are not alone.

My heart was pounding too. I've been in a similar boat, despite being ultra diligent I've gone through the recycling bin to double check labels. I wish the new documentary was available for viewing in Canada.

You can view the documentary on line! I did. Warning at the 6:20 minute mark, they show a close up stll picture of Max with tubes sticking out of him. Some sensitive viewers found it distressing.
