When Lisa was diagnosed with metastatic cancer, her entire world was flipped upside down. She thought that she would know what to expect, but cancer turned everything upside down and she was blindsided by what was coming.
"This...what we are going through... no one can imagine it. It's completely different to what people think it's going to be like. To wake up every day and not know if you are actually going to wake up the next day, that's a horrible feeling"
- Our Dreamer Lisa Magill
Her dream was to escape for a few days from the difficulties of cancer. This dream was manifested in a holiday to Broome, where she could truly escape and have a time of tranquility.
"Pain or no pain, the last few days have been beyond perfection and will forever remain at the forefront of our minds as one of the most kick ass experiences of our lives, where I didn't think of my cancer at all."
- Lisa, our dreamer
Lisa did not let this deter her spirit and she started her own blog, "Terminally Fabulous" charting her own personal journey.
Although Lisa has now sadly passed, in 2019 her blog was turned into a wonderful book that is available at https://www.booktopia.com.au/terminally-fabulous-geraldine-violet-magill/book/9780648391715.html
We are thankful that she was able to experience Broome and become an inspiration to us and everyone else also around her.
