This morning the whole family went out. We dropped the boys at the barbers, went and got Meisha and my hair cut and then went to the supermarket. We made a beeline for the magazine stand and stood there frantically flipping through until we came to a story....about us! Our article about Olive and her CMN is in this week's national Woman's Day magazine. Meisha and I stood there giggling like Giggling Gertie's at the sight of our little family in a magazine.
For my international friends, here is a wee pic of the story, though it may be hard to read! For my NZ friends, please go and buy Woman's Day lol.
As you all know, I'm quite shy so this is a pretty big thing for me and my family! It's very exciting but very nerve-wracking at the same time. I only hope we can reach more people with CMN through this article and widen our New Zealand group x


  1. Once I knew it was this edition that featured the story, I found myself careering through the nearest gas station shouting "do you guys have the latest Woman's Day mag?"

    Everyone heard.

    The gas station staff replied (just as loud) "yep it's over there".....pointing me in the right direction.

    Grabbed it & raced to the counter to pay.

    Embarrassing for a guy, but not for a proud xxx

  2. Hi,

    I found your blog while looking up research on the Nevus and after reading about you in the Woman's Day. Is there any way to contact you as my son also has a nevus although not as large as Olive's. We are considering removal of the nevus via surgery and would love to know if you have any recommended research I can look up? I have no idea how to use these blogs. My email is
