202 – Esophageal Atresia, Hepatitis C & Living in a Group Home (Live @ JFL in Montreal)

Maggy was born with no esophagus. After undergoing 5 major surgeries she was able to finally live a somewhat normal life… except for the fact that, now, she pukes in her lungs if she eats too much! And if that didn’t sound gnarly enough she also caught hepatitis c from a contaminated blood supply, the hospital only contacted her family 13 years later to inform them of this fuck up.

So by now you’re probably thinking this is some crazy shit, but believe us this is only the beginning. What do you do when one of your parents doesn’t accept your illness? How do you afford your treatment, get access to the help you need, and make it on your own? Is looking for a caregiver on really a practical solution? All of this and more on this week’s episode of Sickboy.
