“The world is our oyster": Connie Johnson shares a powerful message from her hospice bed

Live each day, notice the nice moments and now is awesome.

By Candice Mehta-Culjak
As she nears the end of her fight against terminal cancer, Connie Johnson has shared a powerful and heartbreakingly honest message from her hospice bed.
Speaking with news.com.au, the 40-year-old, who ceased treatment for final stage breast cancer in July, insisted "the fight must go on."
"I live on that knife's edge every day," she said in a recorded interview with Canberra radio host Kristen Henry.
"Is it going to be today that that little bit of healthy liver tissue stops working? Because if it was, there's too much on my to do list. I've got too much to do."
"I want to take the kids to the circus, we've never been to a circus," the mum-of-two added.
When asked whether she had found any peace with dying, she replied: "Peace with dying? Nowhere near it."

Connie who continues to work toward what she calls 'cancer vanquishment' through her Love Your Sister charity, went on to share what she would want her friends, family and fans to know if something was to happen suddenly.
"Thank you for the love, thank you for the support, thank you for the friendship," she said. "Live each day, notice the nice moments and now is awesome."

Connie's brother, actor Samuel Johnson, recently revealed that his beloved sibling would, indeed, be entering hospice care.
"Con's needed a lot of quiet time lately to try and comprehend the total headf*ckery that 'actively dying' brings," he wrote on Facebook.
"No phones, no social media - all too overwhelming right now. 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."
Since then, Connie has remained all smiles, spending time colouring-in and enjoying time with those she loves most: her family, friends and, as seen last month at yet another fundraising event for her charity, her fans.
We're thinking of Connie, Samuel and their friends and family during this difficult time.
