1Q44 and I

2021-03-07
Through the daily life of a caregiver and the care-receivers, we take a look at their hardship and the lack of support to them from the society. Full-time caregiver Janice got married in 2014. Her husband Keith was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy in secondary school and started to use wheelchair one and a half years ago. After getting married, the couple had been confirmed by several doctors that muscular dystrophy was not hereditary, so they decided to have children. However, while their son did not inherit muscular dystrophy, he was diagnosed with another rare genetic disease: 1Q44 microdeletion syndrome. As a caregiver, Janice understands that as she cannot change the reality, she chooses to face the difficulties optimistically.

Hong Kong Connection

If “ Hong Kong Connection ” were a tree, how old would it be? It was on 5 March, 1978 that the documentary series first went on the air in Chinese. As the series continues, its staff are determined to go on uncovering and delving into every local and international topic that concerns the people in Hong Kong, whether it be political, economic, educational, commercial, environmental or technological. A tree plays an important environmental role in refreshing the air that we breathe and holding from the earth on which we stand. It is Hong Kong Connection's mission to provide the public with information and analyses as well as an opportunity for rational discussion.
