Fiona McWhirter

Wednesday, 13 October 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

What an amazing gal our guest this week, Fiona McWhirter, is. Fiona was diagnosed with a rare blood disease last year and is extraordinarily busy living her life to the full for herself, her family and community up in Rocky. What doesn't she do?!  An activist in the political, health and environmental spheres, Fiona is a champion person and was recently awarded the Courage Award from the MDS Foundation in the US. It basically means she's a legend. So much so that Joe will nominate Fiona for a Eureka Australia Medal this year, the first time he has announced such an honour on the show. We thank Fiona for being our wonderful guest this week and to her partner, Craig, for putting her up. Here are some links to Fiona's activities:
