Despite a cancer diagnosis and everything that has happened during the pandemic, Chris Harmer insists the past year has been his most blessed.
The green four-leafed clover on his chest, which he has worn for more than 320 days now is evidence of just how blessed he has been, he says.
Every day since March 17, 2020, Mr Harmer has taken a picture of himself or his children wearing a four-leaf clover 'Phelan Lucky' t-shirt.
It is part of the '365 days of Phelan luck campaign' for Phelan McDermid Syndrome, a rare genetic condition that involves the deletion of the chromosome 22.
The picture, and a brief story about either Mr Harmer's cancer journey or his children's daily activities, has been shared with the world online every day via Facebook diary.
"The first person to do it [the online diary], I think was in England and then they passed it on to someone in America, and I put my hand up to do it for Australia, and for little Wagga," Mr Harmer said.
"We have friends all over the world now."
Because it is often mistaken for autism, the syndrome is tough to diagnose, and so it is unknown how many people have the chromosomal deletion.
Mr Harmer's two youngest children, 28-year-old Emily and 24-year-old Tom, are among the rare cases that have been diagnosed.
The family found out about their condition more than 20 years ago.
"When they were diagnosed, back then they didn't even have a name for it," Mr Harmer said.
"Having two disabled children, it's something you never think would happen to you, but it did and it's been such a blessing.
"The love they have for us and for each other is amazing."
But it was only because of Mr Harmer's cancer diagnosis that he was ever able to take on the photo challenge.
In January 2020 he was diagnosed with an incurable grade 4 glioblastoma brain tumour after he collapsed at home one night.
He was just 51 years old and facing a terminal diagnosis. But in the year since that day, Mr Harmer has cause for hope again.
"No-one wants to be told they've got the worst-case scenario," he said.
"The doctors have all said, 'this really is a miracle, this doesn't happen'," Mr Harmer said.
Unexpected as it was, Mr Harmer found the silver-lining to his diagnosis.
It afforded him the opportunity to take on the '365 days of Phelan lucky' challenge to campaign for Emily and Tom's condition.
"I was a truck driver [before the diagnosis], I'd be home at the weekends, and home every second night at 10pm," he said.
"I didn't get to see [the family] as much as I'd like. We were ships in the night.
"I never got to go to Bible study or volunteer to help the community [until] my life changed dramatically. I've got time now."
Before Mr Harmer hands over the campaign baton, he has a couple of photos left on his wishlist.
"We're hoping to get Michael McCormack to wear a Phelan lucky t-shirt, if we can get a photo of him wearing one, that'd be amazing," Mr Harmer said.
"I want to get my oncologist to wear one on the last day [because] on the first day I had my radiotherapy oncologist wear one."
When day 365 rolls around on March 17, 2021, Mr Harmer's photo diary will end. But his "journey of discovery", as he calls it, will continue.
"I will miss it. It's been a big part of our day for a year," he said.
"It's opened me to a whole new level of understanding for Phelan McDermid Syndrome. I never thought I'd be able to do something like this."
