On Monday, November 16th, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp (CBC) at 10:00 p.m. PST and repeated November 22nd at 5 p.m. PST, will run a documentary about the challenges of a life-threatening illness. The film features Eva Markvoort, a double-lung transplant recipient from British Columbia, and two other young women from the U.S. who are all battling Cystic Fibrosis. Unable to meet in person because of the spread of infections and super bugs, the girls have become each other's lifelines through the Internet, providing unconditional love, support and understanding long after visiting hours are over.

65-RED ROSES is produced by Force Four Entertainment in association with CBC Newsworld and Dualogue Productions. Redefining the traditional scope of documentary film in an electronic age, 65_RedRoses leaves viewers with a new appreciation of life and the digital world.
