Last May, ten year old Grace Yeats came home early from St Mary's school in Carterton with a headache and a sore throat.
Within a few hours, she was unable to walk or talk, a mystery illness had affected the part of her brain that controls movement.
Grace was transferred to Auckland's Starship. After months away from Carterton for Grace and her family, who have constantly been at her bedside, Grace has returned to the Wairarapa Hospital.
The Carterton community is rallying around the family to help raise money for all the renovations that will be required when Grace finally gets to go home.

4:06 David Farrar and Cas Carter are on The Panel. The Big Drought. The ACC claim over foetal misdiagnosis. The boss of Yahoo, an organisation known to all New Zealanders who use xtramail, the boss of Yahoo and her contribution to the modern woman's working environment... not. Is having to have private volunteers treat skin conditions in children and band-aid their sores poverty, or is it a failure of parenting? Would you sail on the Titanic 2, and should Christchurch sell its assets to fund the recovery or not?
