For Vanessa. You deserve a thank you all of your own.

For my friends and supporters at the Cancer Council NSW who encouraged, skilled and equipped me for this work, and for life, especially Patty, Anita, Kelly, Lorna, Annie, Carolyn and Meagan, and the team of co-facilitators at Living Well After Cancer. Words cannot express how grateful I am to all of you for the opportunities you’ve given me to help others with my story. Thank you, for everything.

Thank you to Abigail Westbrook from A Source Of Joy Graphic Design for recreating the cover concept. Thank you also to Sallie Ann and Paul Macklin for ongoing support, inspiration and encouragement, and to Michelle Falzon for not allowing me to give up.

And to Ben, Beau, Levi, Daisy and Gabriel - For He knows the plans He has for us – plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us a hope and a future. - Jeremiah 29:11.
