Eva is a young woman from Vancouver who has lived with cystic fibrosis all her life. She received a double-lung transplant a few years ago but has since been dealing with chronic rejection.
A group of Canadian film-makers made her the subject of a documentary called 65_RedRoses, after the title of her blog.(1) The film is winning pretty much every Canadian award for its category, but it still unavailable in the U.S.
But none of that matters. Eva, unfortunately, is dying.
This is her goodbye.
“This is the end of my life, but not the end of my love.”
Damn straight, Eva.
