Day 190 – Gidday Australia!

Art Apple - Day One Hundred Ninety

 

A shout out to all my Australian friends!

I have met just the nicest people on this apple journey and I never thought I’d know anyone from Australia.

But, in fact, I’ve met a number of wonderful people. Naomi Creek was the first person to sign up for the Daily Apple email and her mother-in-law Betty has been such a lovely and unexpected jewel. On top of Naomi and Betty, I recently met Kate, a fellow AS’er, gluten free chef, and blogger. These three ladies make me crave a visit to the land down under – not for their amazing sights or connection to AS, but to meet my friends.

In addition to these new friendships, I’ve been fortunate enough to be asked to provide my Day 135 Calligram Apple for a poster being given out at a seminar on Sunday in Melbourne for physiotherapists. I also did a video telling them about the Apples for AS and Hope & Apples Awareness Campaign.

Gidday and thank you to Australia and my amazing new friends!

Until tomorrow.

Jenna

  1. Aussie Aussie Aussie – oi oi oi 🙂

    Congratulations on the video Jenna. I am so happy that I found your apples page and our friendship which has formed since. Your tireless efforts are such an inspiration and as an Aussie, we are honoured to have your work being used in Oz.

    You will always be welcome to the Land of Oz. I would love to show you around one day!

    It was so good to see your video talk on AS. You look and sound lovely 🙂
    Congratulations on the poster. I’m sure it, along with the video will have a strong impact on those at the seminar.
    Keep up your wonderful work. It’s appreciated so much.
    I love the opera house slices 🙂

  3. G’day back to you, Jenna!
    It was so great to listen and see you on video 🙂 You speak so well and seem just as warm and friendly as I imagine you.

    I think a trip to Australia is a fabulous idea 🙂 you’ve always got a friend to stay with here near Melbourne xx

  4. Hi Jenna,

    I was at the seminar today and saw your awesome poster and videolink. I’m a PT who also had AS – any way we can raise awareness is a good thing!

    Keep up the fight,

  6. We ran a successful AS You See It Seminar for Physiotherapists today. More than 200 physios in Melbourne attended. There was also a simultaneous seminar in Adelaide with some live video feed from Melbourne. This was attended by more than 100 physios.

    Lots of interest about inflammatory rheumatic disease, and in particular, on AS! Thanks for your support.
