BLUE ROUND HOUSE DIABETES WARNING

Posted in diabetes, fremantle, health by freoview on November 16, 2013

You may have noticed that the Fremantle Round House has been lit up in blue since Thursday, which was International Diabetes Day. Diabetes is a major health concern in Australia and around the world that can cause blindness, stroke, heart failure and can lead to amputation of limbs. It is essential to get your diabetes checked by your GP regularly, if your doctor doesn’t do that, insist (s)he does as it could save your life, or from having a stroke!

GET WELL ARCHIE!

Sad to hear the news that Aboriginal singer/songwriter Archie Roach suffered a stroke while doing a song writing workshop in the Kimberley. He is in Broome hospital.

His song THEY TOOK THE CHILDREN AWAY always gives me goosebumps.

His partner Ruby Hunter only died recently, so this is another set-back for this man, who has had so much hardship in his life. He was one of the Stolen Generation children, and was a street kid for a long time, before he became famous for his gravelly voice and deep meaning songs.

Get well soon, Archie!
