A terminally ill single dad from Tasmania has turned to crowdfunding to make sure his son has a decent start to a new life with family members in Queensland. Nathan Colman, 34, started to turn his life around after he was released from prison for assault for a second time in 2012, only to receive the devastating news that he did not have long to live. Mr Colman said he was the sole carer for his son Asaiah, 5, after the boy’s mother gave him complete guardianship last month.
