Join me on Sunday 8th June to launch a wonderful new blog …

Meet Emma.  She’s my babysitter.

She’s 22. Loves a laugh. Loves to travel. And last year was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma.

Stage 4 melanoma is terminal.

Rather than sit at home all day watching Dr Phil and eating Milo out of the tin (which is possibly what I’d do), Emma’s decided to start writing about her experiences and fundraise for the Melanoma Institute of Australia. This is because Emma is a rolled-gold legend.

Now this is where you all come in.

On Sunday 8th June, Emma is officially launching her brand spanking new blog ‘Dear Melanoma’ and she’ll be joined by me and a few of Brisbane’s favourite writers and radio stars – The Sunday Mail’s Frances Whiting (that’s me and Fran together in that photo on the left), radio host and B Magazine columnist IMG_1706Emily-Jade O’Keeffe, 97.3FM’s Robin Bailey and Pearls of Willsdom blogger Sarah Wills.  Together we plan to  offer Emma some unsolicited advice about writing online and being in the public eye. And just for kicks we’ll share some of our best ever hate mail.

There’ll be a scrumptious morning tea before the festivities kick off … so join us for the morning as we celebrate Emma’s blog and help raise funds for the Melanoma Institute.

Now hands up who’s coming?
