She was told last week while at Starship Hospital for kidney treatment that her heart is also failing. If Maddie had a successful kidney transplant, her heart could recover, but without one, she would be at risk of a heart attack, her mother Sarah Manson Collins said. The news had hit Maddie and the whole family hard, she said. “She was in the room when they told us and she said, ‘okay, how many months have I got to live?’ We said, ‘no, it’s not like that, you’re going to be okay,’” she said. •Turn to page 9 HOPEFUL: Maddie Collins and her mum Sarah Manson Collins learned last week that Maddie’s kidney disease has caused early stage heart failure – but they are hopeful she will recover with quick treatment. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Anderton a reluctant Queen’s Birthday honour recipient RETIRED MP Jim Anderton is a reluctant recipient of the Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to Parliament. Mr Anderton was one of three people from south Christchurch recognised on the Queen’s Birthday Honours List. “I feel Jim Anderton uncomfortable with the award to be honest. I turned it down when I was in Government and didn’t think they’d offer it again. I didn’t want it but they got the Prime Minister (Bill English) onto the job and he encouraged me to take it on behalf of the people of Sydenham, so I gave in.” Mr Anderton began his long political career as a member of the Manukau City Council in 1965, and served as president of the Labour Party from 1979 to 1984. He was MP for Sydenham, now Wigram, from 1984 to 1996. •Turn to page 9 FREE Cataract Assessment Your eye surgery experts Specialist eye care in your area 0800 4 EYE TEST 0800 43 93 83 Longhurst Health - 53 Caulfield Ave STAY WELL NATURALLY GO VIR-DEFENCE offers powerful immune support this winter with its nine clinically proven ingredients.
