I almost died from Liver Cirrhosis in 2016.

I am going to share my life experience as an example along with some salient facts and figures thus “normalising” the subject as we are still very reluctant to talk about it or face it directly because of long held stigmas and judgement. I must emphasise that my story is merely one of so many from all walks of life , am no saint just another flawed human being,

Warning : some angst / a tad of swearing and sarcasm, but I promise no terms of feeling blessed/grateful or the words awesome /amazing being used!

Jane Beetham is the name,  aka Queen Chardonnay who is quite happy to take the piss, no pun intended out of herself, and professionally has been a registered Div 1 Nurse, has practised for over 40 years, mainly in the field of Oncology at the Peter Mac cancer Institute in Melbourne Victoria.
