Lisa Wilkinson Husband Cancer
Lisa Wilkinson is married to Peter FitzSimons.
They have been married since 1992 and have had three children; Billi FitzSimons, Louis FitzSimons, and Jake FitzSimons.
Wilkinson’s husband is a former rugby international player and the current chair of the Australian Republic Movement- a position he has held since 2015.
FitzSimons is a multi-talent man who multitasks as an author, journalist, and radio broadcaster.
He is renowned for wearing a red bandana, which he says he does because his children insist he wears them. He is an atheist and a republican.
Peter who lives with his family in Sydney, was named a Member of the Order of Australia on 13 June 2011 for his service to literature as a biographer, sports journalist, and commentator.
Lisa’s husband has never had cancer but it was he who saved her from what could potentially have been a deadly fight with cancer.
Peter noticed what Lisa considered a freckle she has had for more than two decades between her eyes.
His conversation led to a doctor’s appointment which led to the revelation that the freckly was a potentially cancerous melanoma.
The cancer cells were removed, saving her life.
Lisa’s father died of lung cancer on 16 May 1990.
