Lisa Wilkinson breaks down in tears on The Project over young mother suffering from breast cancer


Lisa Wilkinson struggled to get through a story on Sunday night. 

The TV host broke down in tears on The Sunday Project following a story on a young woman, Karyn, suffering from breast cancer.  

Given a terminal diagnosis, the segment detailed Karyn’s life with her newborn baby girl, Billi, who is supported by a night nanny and donated breast milk.

After the story played, Lisa began to speak but had to stop, turning to her co-stars and saying, ‘sorry’. 

Lisa tried to compose herself as tears visibly formed in her eyes and her voice broke. 

‘There is a GoFundMe set up to help Karyn and Billi, and all of the money raised will go towards getting Karyn a night nanny for one year to help cover Karyn’s medical costs,’ she began.

‘I’m so sorry…’ Lisa said, stopping again, before she once more managed to compose herself. 

‘And to set up Billi for the future. You can find the link on our website,’ she added after a pause. 

Her co-star Hamish Macdonald gave her some encouragement, saying: ‘See you got through it’.

Lisa then reminded viewers that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

She encouraged people to purchase the 2022 Women’s Health Diary, which raises money for research into breast cancer. 

Lisa said the funds raised, ‘help improve the lives and outcomes of the estimated 20,000 women and 167 men who, in the next 12 months, will hear the words, ‘You have breast cancer’.
