Prior to Christmas I was diagnosed with a slow-growing meningioma (brain tumour). My treating medical professionals are monitoring its progress but at this stage it does not pose a serious threat to my health.
I do however need to undertake some other treatment which means I am taking a short leave of absence from Parliament. I look forward to returning in the near future.
I am still available to serve my Tasmanian constituents so if you have any issues or queries I can help with please feel free to contact my office.
I’d like to remind anyone who wishes to support brain cancer or brain tumour patients to please donate to Cure Brain Cancer.
Thanks to everyone who has shown care and support.
