Greg Price was 30 years old when he began developing health issues. He was diagnosed with testicular cancer, and ultimately succumbed to a blood clot. There were a number of gaps in Greg’s healthcare journey, leading to delays in his treatment, which may have contributed to his untimely passing. The Price Family and their not-for-profit organization, Greg’s Wings Project, have created the film, which is directed by Dean Bennett (director of CBC’s Heartland). This impactful, short film about Greg Price’s journey through the health care system is intended to inspire positive changes and improvement.
