Devastating news for the Johnson family, as Connie enters hospice care and is “actively dying”.

Connie Johnson has entered hospice care.

The sister of Aussie actor and Gold Logie winner Samuel Johnson, who has been an active fundraiser for cancer research, is reportedly "comfortable as can be", according to her doting brother.

The mother-of-two was diagnosed with bone cancer at age 11, then uterine cancer at age 22 - the last diagnosis she received was breast and liver cancer at age 40.

Samuel took to social media to announce his beloved sister was “actively dying”.

“She just rang from the Hospice (her view pictured) and admitted that this is the most difficult thing she’s ever had to face, but 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.

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

The brother and sister duo has raised over $5 million in cancer research with the "Love Your Sister" foundation.

Connie has received over 7000 comments from Aussies following her story in support of her and her family.
