About Love Your Sister

Samuel Johnson is taking action. Driven by his immense love for his sister Connie, who is dying of cancer, Samuel has set himself an epic challenge – to ride around the entire country on a unicycle!

Putting on hold his acting career and secure urban lifestyle, Samuel is on an uncomfortable mission to remind every Australian woman to be ‘breast aware’.

Samuel's aim is to raise $1 million towards breast cancer research and at the same time, break the world record for longest distance travelled on a unicycle. But it doesn’t stop there...along the way Samuel will be completing dares set by communities all around Australia, he has already competed in a Apple Pie Triathlon, a Vegemite challenge and a Timtam challenge. These dares are devised to test the limits of Sam's strenght, endurance, and sense of humour!

Most importantly though, Samuel and Connie are striving to remind every Australian woman about the need to be 'breast aware' in an effort to promote early detection and improve survival rates.


Their message is 'Don't fall into the booby-trap, be breast aware!'
