Filmed during her stay at Canuck Place children's hospice, 19-year-old Rachel, who has cystic fibrosis talks about the help her boyfriend Dan gives her. In this deeply moving clip, their discussion and her courage and honesty are stunning. She prepares her boyfriend for  the time when “it’s not gonna be ok” and speaks of her desire to keep their relationship 'normal' until then.
