'Zanna and her son, Sam, age 20, lie in Orange. Sam started having epileptic fits at the age of two and was finally diagnosed with CDH2 gene abnormality after many years if hospital visits in Sydney. Sam us unable to speak and needs full care with e\everything such as eating, showering and dressing. Zanna's husband works full time in the disability sector. I admire Zanna her quiet strength and resilience-she never complains and simply does what she has to do as a rural mother whose son will always need her care. There are limited resources to ,help her so the lion's (or rather lioness's) share of the caring is with Zanna. She is an extraordinary woman.
