She’s Canberra’s hero who’s touched the lives of millions and raised millions.
Cancer sufferer Connie Johnson devotes her time to her beautiful family and helping others, so it was time to give back.
And what a way to do it – with a surprise date from her favourite TV host, Karl Stefanovic!
The TODAY host took Connie for lunch and even gave her a gift – some super comfy pj’s!
Connie’s Gold Logie award winning brother Samuel Johnson joined them for a bite and a moving discussion about Connie’s mission to “kick cancer to the curb, Connie style!”

It was an emotional date, with Connie getting teary as she spoke about her two young boys who she “knows in her heart will grow up to be fine young men.”
Even Karl struggled to hold back the tears!
They went on to talk more about her family and the astounding $6 million Love Your Sister has raised for cancer research.
Just weeks ago, the Big Heart Project in Canberra raised more than $2 million.
