Cancer-free and home for Christmas!

Take 5 Latest issue 51, on sale Wednesday, December 10

Standing strong

A six-year-old with a pain in the knee sounds a common enough problem. But

when Kelly took her daughter Hannah to the doctor’s the diagnosis was more

serious than she’d ever dreamed it could be. Little Hannah had an aggressive

form of bone cancer. The family gathered around as Hannah underwent

chemotherapy, surgery and more chemotherapy. Almost a year since that first

stabbing pain, Hannah was given the all clear – and it was home for

Christmas … and plenty to celebrate. Interviews available

Dreaming of a White Christmas

As Santa, Ian gets busy turning his house into a wonderland for kids at

Christmas. There’s a sleigh, reindeers, a snowman, and even a snow

machine. In fact, Ian’s spent around $50,000 on his outdoor decorations – and

over the years has collected nearly $20,000 for Geelong Hospital. When

faced with vandals and storms wrecking his displays, Ian tells Take 5, he

simply fixed the damage and bought more decorations! Interviews available

No gift at all

For some Christmas is full of precious memories. Manii tells Take 5 of the

Christmas Day when his world was full of promise. His partner Karen,

pregnant, was due to be induced on Christmas Day. But heartbreakingly for

Manii, his beloved Karen and their child were never to return home from

hospital. Two years on, Manii’s decorates a tree in Karen’s honour – and

recalls the best time of his life. Interviews available


Are the latest dolls with pouty lips, dressed in short skirts and fishnet

stockings too sexy? It’s a question one grandma asked - and she tells Take 5

why she took to designing wholesome, kid friendly Aussie dolls herself!
