RSL fighting for Logan

THE story of Logan Wells has captured the hearts of many from the Whitsunday community, including the Airlie Beach/Whitsunday and Proserpine RSL sub branches.

Logan, a six-year-old Whitsunday boy, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer earlier this year.

Last week the two RSL sub branches presented Logan's father Garth Wells with about $3800.

The Airlie Beach/ Whitsunday RSL Sub Branch raised about $3300 for Logan's treatment, while the Proserpine Sub Branch raised a further $500.

This comes on top of about $20,000 raised for Logan at a fundraiser that attracted 500 people at the Reef Gateway Hotel late last month.

Logan's grandfather, the late Ian Wells, was a returned serviceman from World War II and a member of the Airlie Beach/Whitsunday RSL Sub Branch.

His son Garth has lived in the Whitsundays for 46 years and is now a social member of the sub branch.

He said he was very humbled by the support of both branches and the entire community.

Garth has been continuing to run his business during the week in the Whitsundays and travelling to Brisbane each weekend to be with Logan, baby Sienna and his wife Lisa.

“She is just the most amazing mother ever,” Mr Wells said of his wife Lisa.

“I've never met anyone as devoted to a child she is.”

Garth is now determined to get his little boy home.

“We are going to win the battle with this thing,” he said.

“There is going to be no other ending, other than getting him home.”
