On Monday, A Current Affair launched an appeal to raise funds for Sharon Chan and her sons William and Oliver.
Currently 39 weeks pregnant, Sharon is raising sons William and Oliver, who was born with Down syndrome and diagnosed with leukaemia 18 months ago. Two weeks ago husband and father, Robert, died suddenly at home.
Viewers have since donated $1.15 million following Brady Halls’ story.
Host Tracy Grimshaw said: “Stories like Sharon’s make us appreciate how precious life is, and how quick we all are in our day to day lives to sweat the small stuff.
“She has been dealing with challenges that would bring most people to their knees. And Australians saw that and wanted to help. It’s been a lovely week to come to work.”
