Dr. Lu travels to Calgary, Alberta to meet Carol, a nurse who also cares for her husband Ken. Ken has chronic kidney disease and requires dialysis while Carol teeters on the brink of exhaustion. Dr. Lu helps Carol explore the idea of self-care, how to cope with feelings of responsibility and guilt, and finds surprise therapy in the unlikely company of some friendly goats in Water Valley.

Special thanks to Carol & Ken.

For their support we would like to thank Can-SOLVE CKD Network
