Abstract
Although "Nova" and "Raelene" read at times like transcripts from "This Is Your Life", both are heartfelt stories from admirable women. Each has gone on to become an advocate for causes beyond sport that have meaning for them. For Nova, it’s indigenous issues and a Treaty; for Raelene, it’s cancer awareness (since her running days, she’s copped both breast and ovarian cancer). They pursue these causes with the same sincerity with which they approached their sport, and write about them with the same passion.
