Spending time with family and friends for Xmas/New Year celebrations while feeling wonderful on Keytruda/Mesothelioma!
Brisbane Christmas catch up with my beautiful friends of over 35 years when our children were little.
So many other catch ups for Christmas/New Year. We have hosted some here and had friends/family staying with us - last one to airport tomorrow bound for home! Extreme hot weather here last few weeks and from tomorrow until Saturday will again see temperatures reach 40 degrees celcius. We have had huge out of control bush fires down the Great Ocean Road area and luckily no loss of life although unfortunately 120 homes burnt down. Our area here is very dry and we are on fire alert. We have only tank water and already this summer have had to buy in water.
Can you believe over 107,000 candles would have to be lit for all who have died in 2015 from asbestos related cancers. Thank you to ADAO (Asbestos Disease Awareness Organisation) for this tradition every year on 28 December candles burn around the world to remember those who have lost their lives to mesothelioma cancer. The candle lighting tradition holds special remembrance for mesothelioma warrior, Jill Vaughn, whose candle lighting tradition brought us hope and light, year after year. Jill tragically lost her courageous battle with mesothelioma last year. She was a rock of strength and beacon of hope for patients and families around the world. We are honored to keep Jill’s memory and love for community alive through this tradition of remembrance.
