More To Life

Hemophilia is synonymous with severe bruising, but it's not the most common bleeding disorder. Very few people know about Von Willebrand disease, which may affect as many as one in 100 people. Joining us is Dr. David Lillicrap, hematologist and researcher at Queen's University in Kingston. He'll debunk some common myths about blood diseases and he'll take your calls. Also today: he has inspired the likes of Wayne Gretzky, Paul Newman, and former President George Bush. The late sportscaster Howard Cossell called him the most remarkable athlete he's ever met. His name is Craig MacFarlane: he's been blind since the age of two, but this hasn't stopped him from going on to win more than 100 gold medals in wrestling, downhill skiing, and water-ski jumping. Show is phone-in based, and viewers can also participate via email.
