On this special episode of the Alberta Roundup, Rachel Emmanuel interviews Sheila Annette Lewis — a Canadian woman who’s been denied an organ transplant because she refused the Covid-19 vaccine. An Alberta appeal court has said it is a virtually certainty Lewis will die without the transplant.

Lewis has recently been given a new hope by an American hospital which has agreed to give her the transplant if testing reveals her body is still healthy enough. But, she’ll need to fundraise $600,000 USD for the surgery. She’s currently crowdfunding through GiveSendGo.

Lewis expresses frustration that the details of her case have been hidden under a publication ban, but also explains why she keeps fighting against all odds.Tune into the Alberta Roundup now!
