Martha was caught up in the toxic gas attack at Summer Bay eatery Salt last year and was left in urgent need of a new kidney.

Roo offered to be a donor, but Martha didn’t want her daughter to take such a risk for her.

But Roo’s not ready to play happy families and stubbornly refuses to visit her mum.
