Smiles and laughs is just what Canberra’s Connie Johnson needs right now, as she faces the most difficult thing anyone should ever have to face.

Connie, who’s blown the world away with her mammoth fundraising efforts, is being cared for at the Hospice.

According to a recent Facebook post by her Gold Logie winning brother Samuel, Connie is “actively dying.”

“In true Connie style, she’s been colouring in to keep the nasty thoughts at bay. She said to tell you that there’s life in the old dog yet,” the post read.

“She’s as comfortable as can be and is being cared for superbly.”

Connie recently received a nice surprise – a warm and hilarious letter from Today Show co-host Karl Stefanovic.

The post has attracted hundreds of loving and supportive comments..

“Bloody Stefanovic made me cry ugly tears.. damn it Karl.. your cover is blown.. and Connie is worth every second of it!” – Linny

“Love it, love you Karl, love you Connie, love you Sam. All worth a big hug from me to you. I laughed hard when reading this.” – Kerry

“Connie every day you touch the heart of many people. I have never met you but I can tell how truly amazing you are and can see why Karl loves you just as dearly. Your brother is also a true gem and I’m so glad you can enjoy a good laugh.” – Amy

“Healing and healthy humour. Sending you lots of love, Connie. Hope your mates and bro make you giggle plenty. You deserve to smile, gorgeous woman.” – Paula

It just goes to show, laughter really is the best medicine!
