Résumé
EN
One of the ways to understand the many trajectories of aging is to focus on individuals who have, for a variety of reasons, enjoyed privileged access to health care and are therefore able to envisage an aging process that would not otherwise have been possible. This article is based on interviews conducted with men aged 53 to 77, living in a major Canadian city, who suffered serious heart incidents and subsequently took part in a clinical trial program involving the use of stem cells. As a result of their participation in this program, these men have new hope for the future, are able to make concrete plans and can entertain the possibility of aging “in good health.”
