Love Your Sister
By Samuel Johnson and Connie Johnson
A searingly honest memoir of family, cancer, love . . . and unicycles by the founders of the LOVE YOUR SISTER charity, Connie and Samuel Johnson, that will inspire and, they hope, get people talking about boobs!
Samuel and Connie Johnson are the powerhouse brother and sister team who established LOVE YOUR SISTER charity.
Samuel is an Australian actor with 20 years experience, best-known for his work on THE SECRET LIFE OF US, CRACKERJACK, UNDERBELLY II and RUSH. In recent times he is more proud of his work as a breast cancer advocate and determined unicyclist.
Connie Johnson is a wife and mother of two beautiful young boys. She has worked in the disability sector for ten years and since her most recent diagnosis spends her time with her family and advocating on breast cancer issues ... when not busy seeing how much torture her brother will endure before he says no.
