Wilbert Gilliland has silicosis. He worked in an abrasives
factory in southern Ontario for over 35 years. He is hooked up to his oxygen
tank 24 hours a day and doesn't have the lung power to play his trumpet
any more. He bought the trumpet when he was 12 years old for $35, with money
he borrowed from his mother and paid back by working as a grocery delivery
boy for 10 cents a delivery.
