I don’t watch much of The Footy Show these days but I want to push the My Room Telethon tonight. I have a little friend, Lawson, who is very sick with leukaemia and The Footy Show have been absolutely wonderful to him. Lawson is a mad Essendon fan and The Footy Show arranged for Brendan Goddard to show him around the Essendon ‘hanger’ a few weeks ago. He was meant to be at the house auction last weekend but he was too sick, and despite having surgery only two days ago Lawson is determined to make it to the telethon tonight.
It’s easy to criticise the show but behind the scenes they’ve done some absolutely wonderful things for some very sick kids.
