Family tragedy unites rivals Lisa Curry and Tracey Wickham

<p><span>After the loss of Lisa Curry’s daughter Jaimi Kenny on Monday, tributes have flown in to the family.</span><br /><br /><span>A joint statement from Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny revealed their beloved oldest daughter Jaimi had passed away in hospital that morning after a battle with a long-term illness.</span><br /><br /><span>While many across the nation shared their condolences to the family, there was one from a long-time rival that particularly stood out.</span><br /><br /><span>Tracey Wickham and Curry were both swimming stars the 1980s, and won more than 20 international gold medals combined.</span><br /><br /><span>Despite the Aussie duo dominating between the lanes, out of the pool their relationship was far from friendly.</span><br /><br /><span>This was obvious when media caught wind of a frosty moment the two shares ahead of the 1982 Commonwealth Games when Curry slow clapped her rival as she walked out to the pool.</span></p> <p><img style="width: 0px; height: 0px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7837918/snake-2.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/e95e8d8a81734f4588f289f9d1211eff" /><em>Wickham (left) and Curry (middle)</em><br /><br /><span>But after the tragic announcement of Jaimi’s death, Wickham put their rivalry aside and reached out to Lisa.</span><br /><br /><span>“Lisa, my heart breaks for you and your family,” she wrote on Curry’s Instagram.</span><br /><br /><span>“It’s a tragic time when losing a child. I can’t believe we both have lost our beloved daughters.</span><br /><br /><span>“God bless you and hoping everyone holds you tight. Big hugs … much love. Tracey.”</span><br /><br /><span>Wickham lost her daughter Hannah Ciobo in 2009 after a five-year battle with the rare disease, synovial cancer.</span><br /><br /><span>Hannah, 19, was first diagnosed with synovial sarcoma — a rare and aggressive cancer — in 2004.</span><br /><br /><span>While she did beat it after several operations and rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, it sadly returned for the final time in early 2009.</span></p> <p><span>She died three hours after achieving her final wish — marrying Tom O’Driscoll in a hospital wedding.</span><br /><br /><span>The pair met two years earlier in a cancer ward.</span><br /><br /><span>Wickham said her daughter was in a hospital gown and on oxygen, but was aware of the ceremony.</span><br /><br /><span>The heartbreaking nuptials were attended by 20 family and friends including Hannah’s dad and brother Daniel.</span><br /><br /><span>“There was love in her eyes,” she said.</span><br /><br /><span>“Tom was alone with her, and he saw her slip away.</span><br /><br /><span>“She was too young to die. Hannah was a fighter until the end, just like her mother.</span><br /><br /><span>“She passed away peacefully with family and friends.”</span><br /><br /><span>Curry thanked the outpouring of love after she made the heartbreaking announcement of her daughter’s death.</span></p> <blockquote style="background: #FFF; border: 0; border-radius: 3px; box-shadow: 0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width: 540px; min-width: 326px; padding: 0; width: calc(100% - 2px);" class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-permalink="https://www.instagram.com/p/CFLUI5KDRgA/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" data-instgrm-version="12"> <div style="padding: 16px;"> <div style="display: flex; flex-direction: row; align-items: center;"> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 50%; flex-grow: 0; height: 40px; margin-right: 14px; width: 40px;"></div> <div style="display: flex; flex-direction: column; flex-grow: 1; justify-content: center;"> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 4px; flex-grow: 0; height: 14px; margin-bottom: 6px; width: 100px;"></div> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 4px; flex-grow: 0; height: 14px; width: 60px;"></div> </div> </div> <div style="padding: 19% 0;"></div> <div style="display: block; height: 50px; margin: 0 auto 12px; width: 50px;"></div> <div style="padding-top: 8px;"> <div style="color: #3897f0; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: 550; line-height: 18px;">View this post on Instagram</div> </div> <p style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 17px; margin-bottom: 0; margin-top: 8px; overflow: hidden; padding: 8px 0 7px; text-align: center; text-overflow: ellipsis; white-space: nowrap;"><a style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: 17px; text-decoration: none;" rel="noopener" href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CFLUI5KDRgA/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Lisa Curry AO (@lisacurry)</a> on Sep 15, 2020 at 5:10pm PDT</p> </div> </blockquote> <p><br /><span>She also issued advice to fellow parents in an Instagram post.</span><br /><br /><span>“Right now, go and give your children the biggest hug and tell them how much you love them, and do that everyday because you’ll never know if it’s the last day,” she wrote.</span><br /><br /><span>Sadly Curry was forced to hit out on social media when a fundraiser was set up by internet scammers.</span><br /><br /><span>“SOME PEOPLE !!!

Border dispute: Dying man told to choose which child may visit

<p>A Sydney family have been asked to decide which of their four young children will say good-bye to their dying father in hospital across the border.</p> <p>Mark Keans is currently in Brisbane hospital, living out his final moments while his family, who live in NSW, are unable to see him due to coronavirus restrictions.</p> <p>The Queensland government has only permitted for one of Mr Keans’ children to say goodbye.</p> <p>His father, Bruce Langborne said it was an “impossible” choice for the family.</p> <p>Appearing on Channel Nine’s Today Show, Mr Langborne said his son was devastated that he could not meet his family before he passed.</p> <p>Mr Langborne said there were a few things Mr Keans’ family was being told “unofficially” as nothing from the Queensland Government was in writing.</p> <p>“One, we had too many people trying to come up. Two, we weren't allowed to drive, we had to fly in and then we probably wouldn't get out of the airport anyway, they'd send us back,” he said.</p> <p>“Three, by us wanting to come and see Mark, we're being selfish and not taking any thought as to the welfare of the other cancer patients.”</p> <p>Queensland’s Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has been heavily criticised for the state’s tough border rules, and this latest decision has made NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard furious. </p> <p>"I can only express my anger, my supreme anger, at the Queensland Premier's decision, which in my view is nothing more base loopy politics. I'm appalled," Mr Hazzard said.</p>

"I feel lucky": Turia Pitt reflects on 2020

<div class="post_body_wrapper"> <div class="post_body"> <div class="body_text "> <p>Turia Pitt has had quite the year, dealing with the bushfires that ravaged her hometown in early January as well as giving birth to a baby boy.</p> <p>It was the devastation that saw her hometown and national parks ruined by bushfires that inspired her to start <em>Spend With Them</em>.</p> <p><em>Spend With Them</em> is a successful Instagram page that aims to put the spotlight onto small and local businesses whose businesses have been impacted by COVID-19 and the intense bushfire season.</p> <p>Pitt reflected on the moment the idea was born, after a visit from longtime friend Grace McBride.</p> <p>"We both cried. We were thinking, what's happening to this beautiful landscape? Our friends' houses and properties have been lost, and all the beautiful national parks. We both wanted to do something to help, but what?</p> <p>"If you imagine that your energy is a light, then if you're just thinking about how things are affecting you and how scared you are, your light is only shining in. I try to flick that, to shine it outwards. So I started thinking, how could we help others?
