Yesterday, an emotional Mother’s Day segment on Weekend Sunrise brought host Matt Doran to tears, and will probably do the same for you.
During the candid segment, Doran opened up about his own “extraordinary” mother, Paula Doran, and the health issues she’s been forced to deal with over the past 18 months.
“She has gone through hell and back over the last 18 months fighting a rare disease,” he said on Sunday morning.
“No one can work out what is wrong with her. It’s affecting her red blood cells.”

“She has just been a warrior, she’s gorgeous. Mum, you are absolutely everything to me, and I wish you the happiest mother’s day… I would be nothing without you.”
“I love you to the world and back.”

Been a tough few years for my beautiful mum. We owe our time together now to the incredible blood donors who are keeping her alive as she fights a debilitating mystery condition destroying her red blood cells. Mum, you are fearless and loyal and hilarious and unlike any other human on earth 👽. A fraction unhinged, too, in the best way possible. You taught me what unconditional love means, and everything I am I owe to you. Happy Mother’s Day @ednasinsty xxx 🤗Big thanks again to all the donors and to the @redcrossau & the team at @stvincentshospitalsydney
