Connie Johnson is a wife and mother of two young boys. She is sister to Samuel Johnson, the World’s most determined unicyclist.
At 12 Connie was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive bone tumour. And then at 22, she faced a tumour in her womb. Through early detection and effective treatments, she was able to overcome these cancers. But at the age of 33, Connie was diagnosed with breast cancer – terminal, untreatable breast cancer
In an effort to make her death meaningful, she set her brother Samuel, (a popular, fun-loving, larrikin actor), the dare of a lifetime – to unicycle around Australia to raise money for breast cancer research.
Together they established Love Your Sister and raised over $6m for breast cancer research, before Connie passed away on 8th September 2017 aged 40.
