Cerita

My wife Jacquie was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer in November last year. It was a shocking and totally unexpected moment - one that turned our family upside down. Since then she has bravely undergone two operations, and more chemotherapy than I would have considered possible. Living as expats in Jakarta, we are lucky to have access to world-class medical facilities in Singapore.

This experience has made me realize how fortunate we are compared to some. I wanted to raise awareness somehow in the fight against cancer, and decided to support 'Mary's Cancer Kiddies'. This is a charity setup in 2003 to provide support for the medical treatment of children from financially disadvantaged families in Indonesia. Much more information is available on their website:

They are raising funds for the first ever Paediatrics Intensive Care Unit for children with cancer at Rumah Sakit Dharmais, a cancer hospital in West Jakarta. Sadly, children with cancer in need of intensive care are often given low priority, since there is a great shortage of neo-natal and paediatrics ICU beds.

In order to support this cause, I'm attempting a Half Ironman Triathlon, the Bintan 70.3 event near Singapore, on 20th August. I've never done a triathlon of this distance before (1.9km swim, 90km bike, 21.1km run) and I'm especially nervous about the run - definitely my least favorite part!

Please support me, and help raise funds for young disadvantaged cancer patients in Indonesia.
