Actor Samuel Johnson has spoken out about his sister Connie’s decision to end her cancer treatment.
In an interview with the Herald Sun, the Molly actor says he vows to support his terminally ill sibling in her final days.
"She is staring down the barrel, but it's not last legs just yet," he said.
"She is just working feverishly to pull her Big Heart Project, which is her swan song before she retires to her family.
"She is staying strong, but every day, my heart bleeds a little bit more."
Connie recently made the heartbreaking decision to end her cancer treatment.
The 40-year-old has been battling the disease on and off since the age of 11, and now, after a double mastectomy and gruelling rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, the side effects have become too much for the brave mum-of-two.
Connie was first diagnosed with bone cancer aged 11 and then went on to discover a tumour in her womb at 22 and was diagnosed with breast cancer seven years ago
Johnson and his sister – who with just one year between them have been inseparable since childhood – co-founded the charity Love Your Sister, which aims to raise money and raise breast cancer awareness.
