Emotions are running high this week as the Parata family grapple with Ari’s cancer diagnosis.
Grab the tissues Home And Away fans – it could be time to farewell another Summer Bay resident.
This week, the Parata family is dealing with Ari’s cancer diagnosis, and emotions are running high. Ari has now opted against undergoing the life-saving procedure.
Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) was hurried to the hospital with probable appendicitis after feeling intense stabbing pains in prison.
Dr. Logan’s (Harley Bonner) discovery, however, was even more concerning: numerous tumors in the belly. Ari had been sentenced to life in jail, but now he is facing death.

The prospect of losing his uncle to prison has been almost agonizing for Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo). How will he cope with the fact that he will never see him again?
“That’s a sobering truth for Nikau, and he’d do everything in his power to prevent it,” Kawakawa says to TV WEEK.
Mia (Anna Samson) seeks optimism from Dr Logan, while Tane (Ethan Browne) convinces Nikau that all is not lost.
Except for a drastic surgery to remove the tumors, treatment options for such an aggressive cancer are few and far between. Ari, however, refuses, much to her astonishment.
Mia, Tane, and Nikau are all taken aback. Why would he refuse to fight? Ari, on the other hand, says that a life in prison or a hospital is no longer something he desires.

He’s ready to leave on his terms. Plus, he’s about to marry the love of his life. It’s a day of celebration, not commiseration.
Meanwhile, Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) and Bella (Courtney Miller) at the Parata family await news of the surprise wedding. Felicity expresses her dissatisfaction with being a member of the family.
Tane has encouraged her to enter the hallowed grounds with him. Bella takes a moment to listen before emphasizing how much Tane loves Felicity and how he may need her now more than ever.
Mia and Ari are ready to marry back at the hospital.
The entire family is moved by their vows, which temporarily distracts them from their dreadful circumstances.
But just as quickly, their reality comes crashing down when Ari collapses!
Hang in there, Ari!

Will Dean tell Karen to leave?
Since arriving in Summer Bay, Karen has continued to encroach on her son Dean’s life. At first, it was to hide from her fiancé as she grapples with becoming a wife. Now, she’s learnt she is a grandmother and wants to stay in town – but not just anywhere, in Dean (Patrick O’Connor) and Ziggy’s (Sophie Dillman) home.
Things get even cozier this week as Karen (Georgia Adamson) receives a surprise visitor. Brett shows up unexpectedly. Karen wants to be his wife, but she isn’t ready yet.
Dean, in an unexpected move, acts as a mediator between the two, leaving Ziggy out in the cold!
At the end of her tether, Ziggy makes a bold suggestion to fix Karen and Brett’s jitters. But will it work?
