Dr. Tse Li Luk, a Winnipeg family physician, experienced a devastating stroke and needed resuscitation. This medical crisis underscored for him how life can end in an instant. Upon Dr. Luk’s return to his practice, he observed that his patients battling cancer focused on 'life in the big picture' and was inspired by their philosophy. Dr. Luk's story and desire to support cancer patients drew together friends and acquaintances to further his vision. Project Cancer Crossing was born.
Dr. Luk is the recipient of the Golden Dragon Award (2009) and the Order of Manitoba (2013).
The Cancer Crossing book is a compilation of interviews with cancer patients, caregivers and health care professionals, all sharing how they live life anew since cancer crossed their path.
Net sale proceeds of the book and all donations received, will go to cancer patients. Cancer has a financial impact not often discussed.
