Kitty kicks cancer to the kerb

IT WAS good news all round for Proserpine this week as local girl Kitty Wilson entered remission after eight months battling neuroblastoma.

Kitty's grandmother, Kay Corskie, attended the Cash 4 Kitty Cabaret last Saturday and confirmed the wonderful news that Kitty's scans had returned clear.

"Kitty will be starting five months of immunotherapy and then she's finished,” MsCorskie said.

"The cabaret was a wonderful event.

"The Lioness Club went to all the trouble of organising it and the band, the Baby Boomers, were just marvellous. Everyone was up dancing.”

One of the evening's highlights was a video message in which Kitty thanked the community for supporting her, leaving very few dry eyes in the room.

More than $2000 was raised at the cabaret, which will be added to a further donation of $1080 contributed by SeaBreeze Tourist Park from its Christmas in July fundraising event.

Proserpine Lioness Club secretary Sue McLeod said the generosity proved the town's heart of gold.

"It all went really well. Between 100 people we raised more than $2000 to give to Kitty and her family,” she said.

Kitty's family would like to thank the community for their incredible and ongoing support during this time.
