Jade Galbally – Why I am who I am.
I have Cystic Fibrosis. A genetic life shortening illness that effects the lungs and digestive system. I want to share some stories about my life experiences, hospital, my brother, receiving a wish and what I’ve learnt along the way. I grew up in Tassie and moved to Melbourne in 1996 to be a nanny in Bendigo for my 3 cousins. That experience steered me toward Melbourne Uni and Bachelor of Early Childhood studies. I have worked in several schools as an assistant kinder teacher, after school care coordinator and holiday program developer. I’ve done 3 seasons ski instructing at Falls Creek, worked 5 years at a fashion agency and I am currently nannying for two adorable boys aged 3 and 8 months.
Sally Young – Almost 40….
I’m a 39 year old ”stay at home Mum” to three kids aged 5, 7 & 9 and I’m currently studying for a Bachelor of Health Sciences (Nutritional Medicine) at Endeavour College. My first child was born on my 30th birthday and with that began (almost) a decade of enormous personal growth; including finally getting a sense of who I want to be and what I want do in life. I passionately believe in a holistic approach to health and wellness but I’m not fanatical about anything! I also think it’s never too late to study, to get fit and strong or become the person you want to be. I’m looking forward to turning 40, every year gets better and better!
Hamish Townsend – Thumbs Up For Ol
A look into my Brother’s inspirational courage and bravery whilst trying to beat cancer at the age of 12. He touched everybody that ever knew him and influenced my life massively. At 18 and a week after my final Year 12 exam I packed my bag, moved 600km to follow a dream of playing big time AFL footy and have never looked back. 8 years later and the result of this dream; a wonderful team of work mates & career, traveling and experiencing the world, an amazing girlfriend and more great friends than there were students at my school.
Your Host: Hamish Evans – ‘Everybody Hurts’ – Overcoming Loss
At the age of 25, my best friend, my rock, my ‘mum’ shockingly and unexpectedly committed suicide. I never saw it coming. This is my story of loss, denial, guilt, anger and finally forgiveness.
