Good fun working this morning at the Kingborough Helping Hands stall as part of the Kingston Rotary Club Mega Market. Weather and entertainment was wonderful. I also had a great chat to those staffing the Unions Tas stall supporting #Jobswecancounton.
Thank you Taroona High School for inviting me to the annual musical production. This year the show was Chicago and once again THS has excelled itself. It was a fantastic night of entertainment. The brilliant cast was supported by the amazing THS Production Band and other talented students including those involved as stage crew, actors, dancers and singers. It’s hard to believe the students on stage were only grade nine or ten they had such a wealth of talent.
I’ve known Taroona High School turns on wonderful productions since my own children attended (both were involved in the band and productions) and I was not disappointed tonight.
The report of the Senate inquiry into cancers with low survival rates has received further coverage with an article today in The Mercury Newspaper. The more coverage this issue receives the more pressure can be put on the Government to implement the recommendations of the inquiry.

Thank you Stefan Romaniw OAM for inviting me to participate in the AFUO – Australian Federation Of Ukranian Organisations – National Planning Day yesterday.
As Deputy Chair of the Ukraine Australia Parliamentary Friendship Group it was lovely to participate with current Chair, Chris Crewther MP, and members of AFUO state groups from around Australia including Marina Ladaniwskyj, President Tasmania.
The Ukranian community in Australia is very active with nearly 39,000 people identifying as having Ukranian decent. One of those people is my husband.
This morning I was interviewed by 936 ABC Hobart’s Leon Compton about the outcomes of the Senate inquiry into cancers with low survival rates. This 12-month inquiry has been an incredible journey with seven public hearings, 117 witnesses, over 300 written submissions featuring many tragic and moving stories.
I hope that the Government will give very serious consideration to the recommendations, which I am confident will go a long way towards giving hope to people with low survival rate cancers.
