When Yinka’s husband was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, they both recognized how little African Canadians talk about health and illness. Feeling isolated and exhausted, she began reaching out to others and soon found how the stigma of illness was negatively impacting many caregivers in her community. While sailing through the Gulf Islands, Yinka and Dr. Mike Lang, a health researcher and adventure guide, explore the causes and undercurrents of illness stigma as their skipper, Steve Richards, imparts the wisdom he has learned from his own cancer experience and years spent on the ocean.
