When an odd stroke of luck ended up with Winnipeg firefighter Rick Negrich getting a CT scan, the last thing he expected was to be diagnosed with a brain tumour. In January 2013, Rick was working a Friday on-shift at a local firehall when his crew got a call.

Paramedics were soon on site and recommended Rick visit the ER for a check-up.Learn more
