A mum from regional New South Wales is planning to return home after battling a rare blood cancer for more than 12 months.
Sarah Fazulla has spent the past year living in Adelaide where she has received treatment in the Leukaemia Foundation village in Adelaide.
“Everyone here is like a big family,” Sarah’s mum, Pauline Jones, told 9News about the village.
“I’ve come home at night … and there have been people giving me food and tea…”
Ms Fazulla’s treatment has been a success and has been given the all clear to head home next month.
Like many charities the Leukemia Foundation has been hit by the coronavirus, noticing a 40 per cent drop in fundraising dollars compared to this time last year.
“People can help us in any way shape or form during this difficult time. We would be incredibly grateful,” Leukaemia Foundation’s Dr Peter Diamond told 9News.
