A year ago today I was told that I had cancer. This photo was taken the night before that fateful doctor's appointment. My older son's best friend from Sydney and her Dad had come to stay - a much anticipated visit which was about to take an unforgettable turn. Here we are on the lawns of Darwin's Casino, watching a lovely dry season sunset while waiting for a Vince Jones concert to start. I was due to get my biopsy result the next morning and was trying desperately to be brave.
To everyone who has supported and encouraged us over the past year - thank you. From now on, the 4th of July will be a day upon which I feel intense gratitude for being anything but independent.
