Jordan River Anderson was from Norway House Cree Nation in Manitoba. He was born with complex medical needs that required him to stay in the hospital from birth. When he was two years old the doctors felt he was able to leave the hospital and receive care in a medically trained family home nearby. Neither the provincial nor the federal governments would resolve who would pay for at home care he needed. Jordan died in a hospital in 2005, never having had the chance to return to his family home, his First Nations, and his loved ones.
