    Such an amazing achievement. We’ve been following your journey day by day and acknowledge the incredible personal effort on Esther’s part in crossing the country “there and back” on horseback. Accolades are also due to the support crew and all the many people who have helped out along the way. A tremendous boost to melanoma awareness throughout the country on behalf of the Hannah Rose Foundation.
    Love to Esther, Maura and Joe for this unique achievement.

    Having met members of your family in Moree NSW during the early 80’s I see where your compassion & determination comes from. What an inspiration you are to your family & other Australians.
