Telethon Weekend 2020

In a year of a global pandemic where we‘ve been dealt WA border closures, stage 4 restrictions and lots of events having been cancelled, Telethon is going head. And that is a reason to celebrate for WA.

Telethon is owned and has been created by the WA community, and we feel that the new format for telethon this year is what WA needs in terms of positivity, entertainment and a reason to be thankful for what we have here in Western Australia.

If you have capacity to give this year, please do. Our children’s charities need your support. If you don’t have capacity to give, we simply ask that you enjoy Telethon and help us unite Western Australia.

Then, in 2018 (when the boys were 5 and 3 respectively), they had genetic testing done and were told that the little boys have Ushers Syndrome type 1D. This means that they are born deaf and will gradually lose their eyesight due to Retinitis Pigmentosa.

2020 Little Telethon Star - Nora Holly

The youngest of three kids, Nora, five, seemed to be a perfectly healthy baby, developing well and even reaching some of her milestones early. Then one afternoon she woke from her afternoon nap and had lost movement in her legs.

In a matter of days, the family's world came crashing down when doctors found a fist-size tumor in her chest crushing her spinal cord. Nora was diagnosed with the rare early childhood cancer called neuroblastoma.
