Ali Clarke Joins Molly and Craig ahead of Charity Simulcast

Nov 13, 2022, 08:56 PM

Friday, the 18th of November Power FM is joining the Ali Clarke Breakfast Show and Mix 102.3 as we bring Christmas early for our beloved Mel Dee Dzelde.

This broadcast will be a moment in history as the two stations join forces in a simulcast LIVE from 7 am!

You'll know Mel from your Workday here at Power FM, where she brought her sunshine to the airwaves for many years.

Having beaten cancer on three occasions, Mel was diagnosed for the fourth time and is currently battling Stage 4 Rectal cancer. She was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease last year during treatment for this.

Mel closely associates with Mix 102.3, having worked as an Executive Producer for Kym, Ali and Dzelde in the early 2000s. There, she first met Chris Dzelde, who was to become her husband many years down the track, when they reconnected at a concert.

Following a fall where Mel broke her ankle, she was placed in the Mary Potter Hospice for recovery purposes. Unfortunately, her diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease is slowly overtaking her body.

Mel's dream is to enjoy a big family Christmas (with her three adult sons Shannon, Casey and Mackenzie), and while we would have loved to see her get home to celebrate, instead, we are bringing Christmas early to her and the wonderful people of the Mary Potter Hospice.

Mel has never wanted to be an imposition on anyone. However, she is passionate about not letting her illness affect her husband or her kids. So we're asking our amazing listeners and wonderful clients to help bring Christmas early to Mel Dzelde and to relieve her husband Chris of some of the financial stress, he is currently experiencing.
