When Jack is 18, he's diagnosed with diabetes but isn't told he can do anything about it, so he doesn't. He falls into comas, he loses vision and needs eye surgery, his leg is amputated and then amputated again further up, and then his kidneys give right out. Finally, someone at an organ transplant clinic teaches him about diet, substance abuse, and diabetes. A story about bullshit and helping yourself. In Ojibwe and English.
