editor’s letter

Life can get so busy sometimes that just keeping up with the day-to-day things can be tough. Between work, family, friends and various commitments, some of the important but easy-to-put off life admin tasks like dentist appointments, eye exams and mole checks can get missed. This month our cover star, Judy Bailey, is urging everyone to not put off the last thing on that list. She writes from the heart about the day she and her husband Chris found out he had an aggressive melanoma. The couple have faced a tough time over the past few months as Chris faced surgery and the anxious wait for test results. Judy’s moving story of what they have been through will hopefully inspire you to book a skin check, and to donate to Melanoma New…

Letter of the month I tune into TV regularly and watch and listen to the beautiful Amanda Gillies on The AM Show most weekday mornings. The article on her in the June edition of The Australian Women’s Weekly just shone. Amanda has such warmth, and to read her story was sad but uplifting. We all have our troubles in life and she sure hasn’t escaped. But her attitude to move forward and stay positive is delightful. The gratitude diary that Gemma McCaw gifted to her is the most wonderful idea and if everyone expressed gratitude instead of detecting negativity in life I am sure the mind would be happier and calmer. I really did enjoy reading about Amanda and it’s just so lovely she has happiness now. Tina Rouxel GREAT STORIES Just had…

in brief news bites

Hip hip hooray! Laughter and joy surrounded the Queen at her official birthday, reports Juliet Rieden. ONE-YEAR-OLD Prince Louis just couldn’t get enough of the Red Arrows’ flypast as the youngest Cambridge attended his first Trooping the Colour to celebrate the official birthday of his 93-year-old great-granny. The red, white and blue smoke trailing through the sky was captivating and Louis cooed and waved and then pulled the best grumpy scowl as the action paused. When, later, Louis spied Grandpa – Prince Charles – he reached out for a hug. Prince William was every inch the proud father as he watched over his happy trio, laughing with his wife. And to cap off the perfect Trooping, the Duchess of Sussex took time from her maternity leave to join the joyous family occasion.…

‘‘each day is a gift”

“He wants you to come into the surgery and bring Jude.” It was the “and bring Jude” bit that had us worried. The man I married is fair-skinned. He burns. Chris also has a lot of moles on his body. We’ve been vigilant about the sun and having regular skin checks, especially after a melanoma in situ was discovered on his calf nearly 20 years ago. A melanoma in situ is an early stage melanoma… it still sits in the top layer of skin, the epidermis. Mere mention of the word “melanoma” has been enough to cause my stomach to turn itself into knots. I know how dangerous it is, how it doesn’t distinguish between young and old, fit or otherwise. Chris, because of his Celtic heritage and propensity to have more moles…
