Second chance at life

Take 5 Latest issue 44, on sale Wednesday, October 27

From dead to dream job

Motorbikes were Chris’s passion. But one day in 2007 when he went out

for a spin he was involved in a horrendous accident. With extensive

injuries, he died on the operating table, but miraculously came back

to life and survived the surgery. On the long road back to health

Chris determined to push himself to full recovery and fitness. Now he

works at a local gym and wants to inspire others that it’s never too

late to follow your dreams.  

A room of his own

Michael has cancer and at 12, in a family of seven kids, all he

wanted was his own room. When his teacher, John, called in to see him

one afternoon he realised the family had no way of finishing their

renovations. He did an appeal on radio and within a week a bunch of

tradesmen turned up and built Michael’s room. 

Strangers in the night

When Sharen moved towns in country NSW she set about making friends

in a very unusual way. She put an ad in the local paper, inviting

singles aged over 48 to dinner. It took a couple of days to kick off,

but eventually Sharen had 14 takers. Dinner was a huge success, so

much so that now it’s become a regular outing for the group.
