Leukaemia

Handen’s team have adventure to a new level

They have been on the roll since and increasing their group as well.

The climb last year was to raise funds and awareness on Leukaemia in PNG. Proceeds were forwarded to the Cecilia Ali Leukaemia Foundation (CALF).

Since then, team leader Mary Handen says the group has had a weekend trip to Tufi in December.

Also in their plan are trekking Kokoda in August, Seeing Benua in September and attending the Kenu Festival in Alotau in November.

Louis Tomlinson opens up about his mum's death

It's the first time the singer has spoken publicly about Johannah Deakin since she passed away from leukaemia in December.

"It was my mum who said to me that I've just got to keep going," he says in the interview with US station SiriusXM.

The former One Direction star was promoting his new single with DJ Steve Aoki.

A 12-year-old cancer patient is granted his wish to 'blow stuff up'

Declan is in remission from leukaemia and recently spent the day with Australia's Federal Police.

He was collected from home in a motorcade, taken to the specialist response group headquarters where he took part in a hostage scenario.

Declan's parents say the experience gave the family something other than his treatment to focus on.

"He has been telling all our friends and family that he is going to blow stuff up and I think they've been really jealous of that," says his mum Belinda.

"He wanted to just blow something up and he did that, which was awesome."

Grandson helps woman step up to higher calling

It was in fact her grandson who put her on this path in the very beginning.

Mary had approached the Cecilia Ali Leukemia Foundation to climb Mt Wilhelm with 11 other women, to raise funds and awareness of the foundation and Leukaemia in PNG.

She was particularly passionate about this because she had lost her 12-year-old grandson Jedrick Moale to Leukaemia in April 30, 2014.
