Maltese youth Henna Cachia is today heading to England for a marrow transplant.

According to Puttinu Cares, the 17-year-old was "meant to go to England last March yet due to COVID-19 this plan ground to a halt."

Extending their well-wishes to Henna, Puttinu Cares continued: "Our thoughts and prays go with her and all other patients which are currently receiving treatment abroad."

Henna's journey follows that of Mikhael's, a Maltese boy who earlier this month travelled to the UK for a tumour removal surgery.

Good luck Henna!

The term ‘drag queen’ is pretty well known (thank you Ru Paul’s drag race!) but how about ‘drag king’? Well, it’s about to get a whole lot more popular as Malta welcomes award-winning show Joan!
