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.”View Slideshow »»
