People from all over the world have been so touched and inspired by the love that Warren & Tania share and below are just a few of the hundreds of emails they have received along the way:

 

- Congratulations on a fantastic book. I read your book in one night and certainly could not stop reading it. You have written a truly inspirational, moving, emotional and loving book, which is a credit to you and your family. Your honesty, determination, resilience and love of all around you make you very special indeed. There should be more people in the world like you, as our world would be certainly a better place. Thanks for writing this book. Alice

- Well what a story!!!! I have just finished reading your book in 48 hours. You are all a TOTAL INSPIRATION to us all who get bogged down in the mundane aspects of our lives. Your story has given us hope that anything in this world is possible with the power of love of family and friends. Graham & Debbie

- Just wanted to email you and tell you that you are very inspiring and a special women. You get a lot of time to think when you do what I do and listen to the radio and educate yourself. I didn’t want to get out of the tractor this morning whilst you were talking. I just wanted to say, you have got your ticket booked straight to heaven for when you need it and it will be first class. Simon

- You have shown plenty of others me included that we all have the power to overcome troubles that we face in this journey called life. All I can say is that I have the deepest regard and admiration for the true grit and determination that the pair of you have shown along this path. Rob

- Firstly let me say what a brave and amazing person you are. I wish there were plenty more people in this world like you. The reason I am emailing you is to tell you how much your admired by me. You are truly my idol, your story has really touched me. I loved your book and have read it two times already. Your beautiful and your family is always in my thoughts. Thank you for writing the most beautiful book in the world. Souraya

- What can I say to encompass how I feel about your book? Not very much. It is too large, too emotional and in all of that is my profound admiration for your lives and the directions in which you are now moving. I think the general response from people about your book and story would be ‘gob-smacked!!!!! How moving the narrative it! Tania, your intelligence, energy and planning has also shone through in your book. Ruth

- I do not know you personally but I can say with such confidence that you are an amazing woman and I think if you ever feel like you aren’t making a difference in the world…. don’t. Superstars aren’t the people we see in movies or on television they are people like you! Rebecca

- Thank you for inspiring me, and giving me a great deal of food for thought to help me in the future. Your families’ story is just amazing!! In my view, people like you are far more deserving of awards such as ‘Australian of the Year’ than the people who often win them. So to me you two are my ‘Australian’s of the Year’ and I’ll think of you whenever I feel tempted to complain about my lot in life. Nola

- You probably won’t remember me but I certainly remember you both. I was a nurse who looked after you in hospital. You are both amazing people! Warren, I have never seen such a will to live and undying love for one other person. It was you, then, that I thought was amazing! I remember being the person who admitted you to the ward the night before your MRI and realise I had no idea what was ahead of any of you (or us!). I can remember the night shifts where we would take turns just sitting next to you while you lay wide awake and I would wonder whatever was to become of you. You truly touched all our hearts and I have thought of you so many times since then. I am so proud of you to think of how far you have come from those days! Seeing you on TV tonight was amazing, to know what I remember, and to see you even just talking is simply uncomprehendible. Tania, you are more incredible than I ever could have thought! Like I said, it was Warren that I thought was amazing then, little did I know the absolute strength you had. I used to wonder how long you could keep it up. Little did I know anything about you! You are strong, and genuine. The world is a better place because of people like you and Warren is probably only still here because of your love for each other. I am proud to have been apart of your wonderful lives. Congratulations. Name withheld

- WOW!!!!! That’s all I could think of to say when I heard you on the ABC radio last week. Caryn

- I heard you with Richard on the Conversation Hour during the week. I’ve had to take a big step back to put my life into perspective as a result. The hand I’ve been dealt pales into insignificance having heard your and Warren’s story. PS. Warren, you’re on a good thing here. Tania’s a bit of all right. Tim

- You are an amazing Lady. I listened to you speak on the conversation hour today with Richard Fidler and I found myself hanging on every word you said. While you were speaking, I found myself frowning or laughing with you, but when you spoke of Warren’s work mates showing great support I cried. I was driving a work car at the time and must have looked like a fool, but I was overwhelmed with such an awesome show of support. Thank you for your story – can’t wait to read your book! Brett

- I have never been motivated to respond to anyone I have listened to on the conversation hour before. Your story and commitment had me in tears. I feel privileged to have been able to listen to your story and to have learned more about your life. You are an amazing person and you have made me think what more I can do to help other carers I know. Thank you for telling your story – I just really wanted you to know that I was listening to you in awe. Melinda

- I heard you on the conversation hour this morning and just wanted to tell you how it made me feel as a listener with a well husband and kids. As I listened to you speak it was wonderful. I can say that you spoke in such a way about the incredible things that have happened to you and your family that far from feeling sorry for you and lamenting your terrible bad luck, I saw your husband and son as being extremely lucky and you as being a wonderful warm and truly caring person. You are an inspired choice as an ambassador for carers as you elevate their lives when you speak of your own. You said you are just a normal family but in many ways, I think you are all extraordinary. Wow!!! Lisa

- How inspiring you all are. It just goes to show that love is the most powerful thing one can possibly have. I had goose bumps listening to you Tania on the radio. I couldn’t turn it off. Donna

- I was privileged to catch you talking on radio today. You made me drive, listen, taste, hear and love differently all day. Thank you so much for sharing your story. Michelle

- You and Warren deserve every accolade that is bestowed upon you both. Your utter devotion to him knows no bounds. You are a true inspiration to all of us. Debbie

- Hearing your story was one of the most profitable hours I have ever spent. What an inspiration you are! Lee

- I was so moved by your words, your experiences and your spirit – as well as with Warren’s journey and victories. Perhaps any remark I make may appear a cliché – after the reality of your day-to-day experiences. I just wanted to write and thank you, Tania, for reinforcing again the wonderful message that love and good friends and good humour, are hope for the future and the ability to recognise that these really are life’s riches. Thank you – Kaveri

- Your family’s story moved me to tears of joy and sorrow. You are all amazing!!!!! Your courage and energy are inspiring. It would be a much better world if more had your wonderful attitude. Pip

- You are an inspiration to everyone about love, loyalty, respect, tenacity and just not giving up. Janice

- I just wanted to say what a special lady you are, and what a wonderful family and support you have around you. It is a pity our government wouldn’t give people like you and all those other wonderful carers the recognition you all richly deserve. Bill

- I heard you speak this morning on the radio and from when you started speaking, I did not move from where I was standing. I was in the middle of sweeping the floor and just stood and listened to you tell your story. Wow!!!! I truly feel warmed by hearing your story. Trevor

- Wow, what can I say….. Your book is so interesting and it is the best book I have ever read. I am up to the bit where you take Warren home full time. You deserve a medal – you are so brave and I really look up to you. Well done – we need more people like you in this world. Maria

- I have finished your book and all I can say is ‘What a wonderful story’. At times I would stay up at night sometimes reading till 2am as I was so hooked in the book and the wonderful lessons witnessed from your love to Warren. I am totally blown away from the whole experience and I will be reading it again – believe me. It’s sad that it’s finished…. You need to write another one now. Maria

- Thank you Tania and Warren for your story, wisdom and inspiration. I am truly grateful I listened to the radio today. I am also truly grateful there are people like you in the world spreading your message with us all. Rina

- Your story gives hope and strength to others in similar circumstances, and for that you are an absolute hero in my eyes. I feel privileged to have meet you and heard your incredible story first-hand. Jessica

- I have never contacted anyone before like this, but I felt compelled to let you know how your story has touched me. It is a true ‘Love Story’. Thank you for sharing your story. Kerrie

- Three nights ago, I woke up at about 2am, turned on the ipod and chose the Tania Hayes – Conversation Hour. 45 minutes later, I am still awake, deprived of sleep and inspired. Keep up the great work in all areas of your life, you really do inspire! Paul

- I was truly touched by you and your story. I will be purchasing your book because it will be an incredible read and what a legend you are. A real Australian story and you all deserve all the luck in the world for you and your family. Patrick

- What a wonderful story on love and perseverance. I am amazed at the courage and devotion shown by you in the face of what appeared to be insuperable obstacles. This story should be read by as many people as possible. Congratulations. Pamela

- What a fantastic read, I couldn’t put it down and read it in one sitting – an all night and 1 box of tissues. Also, the chapter from Warren’s perspective was very powerful and moving. The journey that you both embarked upon and now joined by Josh is truly amazing and what an incredible family you are. Mary

- I would like to congratulate you on receiving the Sir Roden Cutler Charities Carer of the Year Award, but also to say that I appreciate the inherent nobility of your loyalty to Warren and of the love that can bind people together. I would like to think that people would always sacrifice themselves for their nearest and dearest, but that usually only happens when lives have been interwoven for many decades, and many life goals already fulfilled together. You are a rare and wonderful human being, who can carry on in the face of adversity and show the real face of humanity to those who would only serve themselves. I am not religious, nor am I in the habit of contacting people I don’t know, but your story moved me and your husband is a very fortunate man in having you. Gina

- Just wanted to congratulate you on your book. I cried from the first chapter to the last, both happy and sad tears! You are truly a very special couple. Mandy

- Thank you for your time today. Your story is an inspiration to us all. The phone calls that I have received and the comments from the staff have all given them a positive outlook. Scott

- I have never written to a stranger before, but your story so touched my heart. I saw you on television and the tears streamed down my face. You are one truly amazing lady. I have no doubt your son will grow into a lovely young man having learn’t many of life’s teachings through his parents. I am going out to buy 2 copies of your book in support. I wish you and your family every happiness in life. Tracey

- I just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing your amazing story. You and Warren are a true inspiration and it really got me to rethink what true love means. God Bless – Craig

- I bought your book online, receive it on Thursday and read it on Friday. I must say I used a box of tissues with tears of joy that you have married and have such a lovely son. I also think that it is wonderful to see the commitment you have to each other as marriage has become disposable these days. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your story with us and I pray that you may find more silver linings in your life. Bill & Mary

- Just finished reading your book and found it truly inspirational! It sends out a great message and I am amazed at what you have been through. I read it in two weeks which is fast for me as I am not a regular book reader. Thanks for sharing your story and I wish your family all the best for the future. Glen

- Just a quick thank you for both your inspirations. Warren is the luckiest, unlucky guy around and with your continued support and drive, you would both make Oprah very proud. Gordon

- You are both inspirational and have touched my heart in a big way. While there are limits to what modern medicine can cure, limits to resources and finance, limits to many other things, I guess you have shown by example, that there are no limits to love. God Bless – Sharon

- Tania, I just wanted to say thank you for touching my life and being such a wonderful example of joy, hope and love. Sharon
