Spending time with family and friends for Xmas/New Year celebrations while feeling wonderful on Keytruda/Mesothelioma!

I am enjoying catching up with family and friends over this Christmas/New Year break.  The above photo was taken recently in the beautiful gardens of Melbourne, Victoria with my little grand-daughter Ruby.  Jo, Ruby and myself had a girls' catch up in central Melbourne just prior to Christmas with a visit to the NVG (National Victorian Gallery) and saw Andy Warhol part exhibition plus a visit to the children's Andy Warhol cat section - highly recommended for the kids to computer interact with his cats!

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.

“When I started the candle lighting in 2000, I never dreamed it would go on this long. Thanks to ADAO, I can dream that it will go on forever! Linda and Julie have really made it something special and the site is so amazing. I could never have kept up with all the names. Many blessings for your future work.” — Jill Vaughn.
