Gold Logie winner Samuel Johnson has taken to social media in a heartbreaking post revealing that his beloved sister Connie had entered hospice care and was “actively dying”.
The mother-of-two, cancer research fundraiser and founder of Love Your Sister is taking a break from social media as she comes to grips with her inevitable fate, her brother wrote online.
“Con’s needed a lot of quiet time lately to try and comprehend the total headf**kery that ‘actively dying’ brings,” he wrote.
“She just rang from the Hospice (her view pictured) and admitted that this is the most difficult thing she’s ever had to face, but in true Connie style she’s been colouring in to keep the nasty thoughts at bay! She said to tell you that there’s life in the old dog yet.
“She’s as comfortable as can be and is being cared for superbly.”
