Inland Empire Families Featured on Second Season of National TV Show ‘Life on the Line,’ Produced by Loma Linda University Health
Date:8/5/2015

The documentary TV series “Life on the Line,” featuring stories of hope and courage from the Inland Empire, begins airing its second season on public television stations across the nation August 12.

The show’s first season was successful, airing on nearly 300 public television stations in over 125 markets in the United States. The new season features stories of strength and resilience – from a newborn fighting for his life to the International Behavioral Health Trauma Team dispatched to the Philippines following a deadly typhoon.

Narrated by celebrity journalist Lisa Ling, “Life on the Line” season two features seven half-hour episodes from Loma Linda University Health. The first episode, “Rough Beginning,” follows the journey of a couple – Janett Anguiano and Gian Ledesma – expecting a baby boy who will be born with a life-threatening condition, gastroschisis, a birth defect in which the intestines are outside of the body.

“I was scared to hold him when he was still so fragile,” Ledesma said of the day he got to hold his son for the first time.

After undergoing two surgeries, fighting infection and healing, Theodore was on the road to recovery.

“I was overwhelmed,” said Anguiano when she held 10-day-old Theodore for the first time. “To feel his warmth was one of the best days of my life.”

Additional episodes of “Life on the Line” season two will follow the lives of two young children born with heart disease in Nicaragua; survivors and the aftermath of the typhoon in the Philippines; organ transplant recipients and others who struggle to survive their individual, unforeseen circumstances.

“It is a privilege to share these inspiring stories with our viewers around the nation,” said Cosmin Cosma, director, advancement films at Loma Linda University Health. “This show is about how real people find meaning in the midst of a tragedy. This is where the real story lives and their strength of spirit shines.”
