"Days before Thanksgiving last month, 23-year-old Shantee Anaquod was focused on her UBC courses, enjoying her part-time job at an eyelash salon, and hoping to go on an archeological dig next summer. Instead, she's now fighting for her life, battling atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) — a rare condition that affects only one in a million people and fewer than 150 Canadians. AHUS causes the body to build a protein that attacks the body's healthy cells. A medication called Soliris could save her — but it costs $750,000 per year, and is not covered in B.C." (CBC)
