JOIN THE FIGHT FOR LIFE When STARS’ first helicopter took flight in 1985, it didn’t just offer hope to the hopeless, it radically changed the way critical care was delivered. Larissa Helbig, STARS VIP (Very Important Patient) Less than half the population of Western Canada lives in major urban centres and has access to critical care within minutes. For the other half, such access is measured in hours. That can mean the difference between life and death; full recovery or permanent damage.
