Sally Obermeder - cancer battle and Journo Jam

This is the saddest, yet most inspiring story you will hear about cancer.

Many are aware that Channel 7 entertainment reporter Sally Obermeder is battling cancer.

Read more here:

Last night, a slew of Sally's journo mates and friends turned out for the event called Journo Jam, held at the Upstairs Beresford, in aid of raising funds for Sally's chemotherapy.

The event was sold out, and Sal's pals - with bands from Channel 7 and Channel 10 'competing' against each other - rallied around her with lots of love, laughs, and donations.

In this clip from The Morning Show this morning, you can see the fun that was had at the event, as well as a very emotional Sal talking about her battle (I defy you not to cry... I bawled):

How brilliant and moving was the clip at the end, with a surprise message of support from US E! News reporter Giuliana Rancic?

Undergoing her own battle recently (see: http://josiesjuice.blogspot.com.au/2011/10/giuliana-rancic-speaks-about-her-breast.html) Giuliana's words are also very moving.

It's ironic both are battling cancer at the around the same time. On Sally's Twitter page, you'll see she has been a huge fan of Giuliana long before they battled the same disease:


Ah, a woman after my own heart!

As Sally says in the Morning Show clip:

"It's like, I'm still the same person, just without hair."

Just even more beautiful on the inside and outside.
