As many of you know, after leaving RMIT last year to take up the job of coordinating the Bachelor of Education – Early Years at Melbourne Poly, Elly Thompson was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Elly was in touch with me last week to thank us for the support she received over this period – flowers, cards and many well wishes. She was grateful to feel so supported by her RMIT colleagues.
She also wanted to share with us her good news – after two surgeries, 16 rounds of chemo and 21 days of radiation she is now cancer free! I know those of you who know and worked with Elly will be as delighted as I was to receive this news.
If you want to get in touch with her Elly her email is EloiseThomson@melbournepolytechnic.edu.au
