Just had one of the busiest weeks of my life with the launch of the DVD Cancer – What Now?
Channel 7 Adelaide generously allowed me to use their roof top entertainment area and about 80 invited guests came to help me celebrate the culmination of three years work.
Health care professionals and cancer survivors who all gave of their time so generously to tell their cancer stories were they and it was wonderful to renew acquaintances with the people I had worked so closely with in producing the DVD.
It was a perfect opportunity to thank publicly those who had made the DVD possible – Cancer CouncilSA in particular Professor Brenda Wilson , my production team headed by Glenn Woodcock, Project Manager Alana Dec, (who flew over from Melbourne) Adam Steinhardt and Josh Welbourn from The Kingdom advertising agency and photographer Richard Lyons and many others too numerous to mention.
Channel 7 boss Tony Davidson was incredibly supportive and his assistant Lena Jankovski did a great job organising the launch.
My wife Eve and all my family and friends who’d gone through the ups and downs of the past three years were also there to lend support.
The Adelaide community really got behind the project and people like Jaynie Morris and Kelly Noble have been at the forefront. Thanks so much.
Now Cancer – What Now? is out there and I know it will be of great benefit to cancer patients, their families and carers. While it has been produced entirely in South Australia it is relevant Australia wide and has the endorsement of Cancer Council Australia.

* Avatar and Cancer – What Now? both took almost 4 years to produce.
