Sally Obermeder & Her Bondi Beach Babe

Sally Obermeder & Her Bondi Beach Babe

Australian journalist Sally Obermeder took her 4-month-old daughter Annabelle Grace to meet up with Larry Emdur at Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday (February 22). Sally – an entertainment reporter for Today Tonight – is undergoing chemotherapy for stage 3 breast cancer. The 38-year-old new mom was diagnosed the day before she gave birth.

She recently told WHO, “I’m so blessed that I had Annabelle—she gives me so much joy and happiness, but she also gives me a reason to fight with everything I’ve got, every day. I can’t let it beat me, I have to fight really hard, because the most important thing is that I’m actually here for her in her life.”

Last month Obermeder – who credits her stockbroker husband Marcus for his “amazing” support – was hospitalized due to an infection and was told she will have to go through three extra months of chemotherapy.

However the illness is not stopping her from working on a tell-all memoir. She insists she will be “writing every word herself”. The book is due to be released in November.

Recently Obermeder and her daughter were captured in a portrait photograph by Anne Geddes. She says of the picture, “I can’t explain how touched I am by Anne’s gift. It’s just so incredibly special.”

    I wonder if the baby is being bottle-fed. She sure looks small for her age. Bad mother !!

      What a ridiculous comment! This lady has BREAST cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy!! I’m sure breast feeding would not be safe or even possible under these circumstances. And the baby looks beautifully healthy anyway.

      Did you even read the article? This woman is fighting for life, undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. Even if she wanted to breast feed, given that chemo is quite literally poison, there is no way it would be safe for her child (not to mention all the other drugs I’m sure she is on to counteract the severe side effects of the chemo).

      Also, any idiot with half a brain knows babies come in all sizes. In fact, all the bottle fed babies I know are much chunkier then their breast fed counterparts.

      People like you MAKE ME SICK!

      Sera – you have no idea. I recommend you research the effects of chemo prior to posting such a mis-informed post. Besides, little Annabelle looks perfect!
