Hamilton woman Melody Johnston has stopped counting - but she needs two more surgeries to save her life.
The 25-year-old is in renal failure but needs weight loss surgery to fit the criteria for a lifesaving kidney transplant.

Hey Waikato👋 The annual Red Cross Book Fair that was set to take place on the first weekend of September at the Te Rapa Racecourse, will now be taking place on the 5-7 March next year.
In the meantime, we are looking to host a Pop-Up Bookfair in November - more details to be posted here in the coming weeks.
We are still taking book donations during this time up until the event. If you’re planning on a spring clean once the winter blues are over, you can donate your books that are gathering dust by dropping them off to our Hamilton Service Centre on Te Rapa Road.
We look forward to seeing all your wonderful faces and in the meantime keep an eye on our social channels for more updates. 📚
