Daughter's sacrifice

Published: 7:53PM Monday February 09, 2009

Alix Whittaker is 19 and should be enjoying life, starting a new career in theatre, and doing what normal teenagers do. Instead, she is looking at sacrificing her life to look after her sick father, because government departments have canned his home care.

Robyn Janes presents the story of a daughter who is willing to give up everything because she loves her dad.

Note: ACC says there has been an assessment of John's case to consider his exact needs and best type of care. That report is expected in a few days, and Close Up will keep you updated.
