B+ S ED­I­TOR GEMMA SUTHER­LAND

Sunday Mail - Body and Soul - - FRONT PAGE -

Our cover star, Con­nie John­son, has ter­mi­nal breast can­cer. She and her brother, ac­tor Sam, know she’s in bonus ter­ri­tory. On shoot day, Con­nie seemed low on en­ergy at first and I learnt she’d not been well the day be­fore. She grinned (lit­er­ally) and bared her way through and Sam did what he could to make sure she was com­fort­able. That ap­pears to be the story of their lives: Con­nie is strong, and Sam is her safety net – but she’s just as much his. Their story, on page 8, will make you grate­ful for life. Con­nie wants you to value your health; be proac­tive, not a statis­tic. Bonus ter­ri­tory may not ex­tend to see­ing your kids or grand­kids grow up.
