Farewell To A Hero

Connie Johnson Memorial Service Details

We can share details today of this weekend's public memorial service for Connie Johnson.

Connie passed away on September 8th, a day after the mother of two was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia for her tireless work to raise millions of dollars for cancer research through her Love Your Sister charity.

The charity was launched after her terminal breast cancer diagnosis seven years ago. It began with her brother Sam Johnson's unicycle ride around Australia, which raised $1.75 million.

Here's the details for those wishing to pay their respects:

What: Public Memorial Service for Connie Johnson
When: Saturday, September 23rd at 4:15pm
Where: St Paul's Cathedral (Cnr Flinders St & Swanston St, Melbourne)

With the cathedral expected to be pack, the service can also be views from the big screen at Federation Square.
