I just have to tell "the world"  My beautiful 26 year old daughter, Megan,
who is in recovery from Hodgkin's Lymphoma, has been selected as one of the
7000 community Olympic Torchbearers for the Olympic Games in Sydney this
year.  She teaches, is the manager of regional junior school sport, is a
voluntary surf lifesaver and a member of the voluntary coast guard, and even
while so sick and bald from Chemo. in 97-98 she still visit the school at
which she had been teaching to talk to the kids and re-assure them that she
wasn't going to die, and that cancer can be overcome.  We are so proud of
her.  These community runners had to meet criteria of overcoming a great
challenge , excelling professional or in their work area, and giving
outstanding community service.  Apparently many 10s of thousands of
nominations were received from all over Aust.  Pardon my great big grin (and
my happy tears) but I have to tell everyone!

That is fantastic news, Judy...you must be so proud of her!
It sounds like if anyone deserves something great like this to happen to
them, it couldn't have happened to a better person than your daughter.
Congratulations coming your and Megan's way,
Jayne Sheehan
