The desire to overcome is at the core of everyone. Especially those fighting disease, facing a natural disaster, coping with a disability or battling mental illness. "Life on the Line" is an inspiring look into the resilience of humankind.
At hospitals around the nation, people face life and death situations every day. "Life on the Line" zeroes in on one renowned academic hospital in Southern California. Loma Linda University Health serves one-quarter of California, and equips medical teams to travel around the world. The show follows patients from Southern California to the Amazon, Haiti and Egypt as they all fight a similar battle: to stay alive. Rarely does television follow the real-life journey of a person's will to survive. This is not just about the doctors. It 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. Their hope. Their courage. Their determination. Their lives are inspiring.
