Listener Samantha contacted Ben Fordham on Friday with a plea for help.

She was fighting to visit her father in Queensland who was only given days to live.

Ben Fordham’s team contacted Health Minister Brad Hazzard’s office and Queensland Health.

Samantha was given permission to fly to Queensland on Saturday, skip hotel quarantine and see her father, Les.
