On Monday night we kick off a jam-packed week with the inspirational story of Kerrie Otto de Grancy who is running a 100km marathon to raise awareness about blood donations. Kerrie’s daughter, Bella Angel, was born at 24 weeks, weighing just under 500 grams and needed nine blood transfusions to save her life. Today, little Bella is just like any other six-year-old girl. Kerrie has decided to give back and is running the 100km marathon to raise money and awareness for the cause.
Megan Gale joins us at the desk on Tuesday to talk about 175 years of the iconic retailer, David Jones. We will also meet miracle baby, George Kruger, who endured 16 operations before he turned nine months old after he was born with a group of rare congenital defects affecting his spine, limbs and ability to feed. With staggering hospital bills, the Kruger family almost lost the roof over their heads, but thanks to the kindness of friends and The Smile Foundation, baby George has a home to return to.
On Wednesday, Dave Hughes brings us old school Hollywood glamour. Live from the red carpet at the premiere of The Great Gatsby in Sydney, Dave will be speaking to Leonardo DiCaprio, Baz Luhrmann and the cast of this epic blockbuster. Back in Melbourne, Asher Keddie joins us at the desk to talk about the TEN’s hit series, Offspring, which returns on May 22.
