Palmerston North woman Moyra Speir has at last been granted permission to go and look after her nephew Andrew, who's terribly ill in Auckland. 36-year-old Andrew is dying from bowel cancer that has spread through his body. He's thought to have just days to live. His aunt Moyra, who lives on her own and is fully vaccinated, was desperate to drive to Auckland to help Andrew and his elderly parents who are caring for him in his final days. Nathan Rarere spoke with the National Party's deputy leader Shane Reti, who's been advocating for Moyra and Andrew.
