John Blackman and his wife Cecile were tonight interviewed by Tracy Grimshaw on Channel 9's A Current Affair about his amazing Christmas Eve mercy dash. John collapsed at home on December 24 last year and was found lying next to his desk by Cecile. Cecile swung into action and John was soon transported to The Alfred Hospital  by ambulance  where it was discovered he had a brain tumour the size of a golf ball.

Just in case you missed the show and to hear John and Cecile tell the full story. Watch video here
