She put up a good fight.

What boy didn't have a school-boy crush on her?

From all accounts, a very nice Lady. Aussies will be upset at this one.

So very sad, she put up a thirty year fight.

Livvie was my first ever girlfriend!

I used to think she was singing this to me.

Yeah, if it was cancer, she really put up a fight and hung in there for a long time.

We'll find out soon if it was that or complications arising from cancer. It's a blow for Travolta her co star in Grease.

I read that she had stage IV breast cancer, having spread to her bones.

When asked in a September 2018 interview with Australia's Channel Seven whether she was scared following the third diagnosis, she said, "I'd be lying if I said I never go there. There are moments; I'm human. If I allowed myself to go there, I could easily create that big fear. But my husband's always there, and he's there to support me."

"I believe I will win over it. That's my goal."

Poor old girl...

Here you can see some of the great work she did in the cancer space.

She was a tireless advocate for research and looking for a cure.

Not that it will have created anywhere near the emotional wave Livvie has, another great Aussie passed aware over the last weekend.

Judith Durham, the lead singer of The Seekers, passed away over the weekend.

Look up The Seekers up if you have never heard of them. At one point they were bigger than The Beatles.

Someone mentioned Judith Durham the other day in the music thread.

Beautiful voice. Beautiful girl.

I realise Australia is somewhat insignificant in terms of global culture but to lose both Judith and Olivia will hit a lot of people. I don't think many people realise how big The Seekers were.

I didn't. I vaguely remember hearing the name of the group before. I saw it the other day in the music thread and gave it a listen, but didn't really pay attention. I gave it a listen it deserves a little bit ago. I liked it. Don't remember ever hearing her name before, but now I won't forget it.

R.I.P. Judith
