I’ve never liked the term Blog, so I’m calling this the Captain’s Log for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the Captain’s Log was used by the first explorers sailing the seven seas to record significant events which is a fitting description of how I feel about my journey and the aim of this page. Secondly, from a nostalgic POV when I retired from the Australian Army I was a Captain. Enjoy!

From cancer fighter to survivor to philanthropist

In this episode of Movember Radio, I chat to Jonny Imerman, the founder of Imerman Angels and a testicular cancer survivor who was diagnosed at the age of 26. Jonny talks openly about the challenges he faced going through surgery and chemotherapy and the support he received on his journey from family and friends, but never met anyone his age that was a cancer survivor. He decided to set up Imerman Angels to introduce each cancer fighter to one survivor who can inspire them to know that they can overcome their cancer.
