    "Two months ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, I have had surgery and am currently undergoing chemotherapy - the prognosis is good.

     

    "My hair has often been a topic of discussion among the political class: I have always wanted the opportunity to wear wigs - now I have an excuse.   

     

    "Tens of thousands of Australian women go through this process. Everyone deals with it in their own way - I am focused on getting on with my job, as I have continued to do for the last two months.

     

    "I won't be providing further public commentary on this issue, and would ask media to respect that position."
