This week's love story belongs to Rick and Amanda, and features all the kinds of love we celebrate on this podcast. But this episode also happens to feature a Canadian hero and icon. You might know him as the "Man in Motion".

On that legendary journey, Rick lost his own heart to his physiotherapist, Amanda, who played a vital role in keeping him going physically, emotionally and psychologically.
