Introducing John – Spiritual Tour to Egypt – The Egypt Travel Journal of Carla & John Part 2

Hello, I’m John.   I am the CEO of my own successful marketing Company which I have been running for 15 years.  I built the company from an idea in my garage and now employ 135 staff.  Building this Company and the network of customers and business associates has been the focus of my life for the last 15 years.   I have lived for my work going to the office sometimes 7 days a week.  The adrenalin rush that I get from opening up new markets and overcoming obstacles is great.    I travel a lot both within Australia and overseas for business and when I’m not working, I like to play golf and sail my 60ft catamaran with friends. This year I will be 55 and I have no idea how I managed to get to that age so quickly.   I have been married to my beautiful wife Carla for 26 years and we have 4 children.   Carla has been there supporting me all the way keeping the home fires burning.

Life has been exciting and relatively hassle free.  However, early last year I got a huge wake up call that nearly knocked me for 6.   Seemingly out of nowhere my life was turned upside down almost overnight.   Carla became ill.  She was tired and listless all the time and if I looked at her sideways the wrong way I was likely to get my head bitten off.   At first we thought it was the dreaded menapause but it turned out to be more than that when other symptoms became apparent.   Carla had developed ovarian cancer.

It scared the life out of me.  Carla had always been there and I couldn’t begin to imagine living my life without her.   I suddenly realised that without her beside me everything else had very little meaning.   I off loaded a lot of my workload and supported Carla through the process of beating the big C.   Together we went through the surgery and chemo.  She was magnificent and fought like a trojan.   The recovery process was long and arduous but she came through it.
