About Eric, Ezrela and Ezmond Cheung's Fundraiser

I target to raise HK$500,000 for The Hong Kong Anti-Cancer Society.

My beloved wife Portia died of breast cancer on 23 February 2007. Time flies. It is nearly 10 years since Portia’s departure. Notwithstanding her illness and early departure, my wife did enjoy a blessed life on earth and had the privilege of tremendous support and care from her family and friends in times of difficulties and trials. It is both her wish before her departure and ours that more care and support can be given to those less resourceful breast cancer patients to help them maintain a good quality of life with dignity during the trying period. 

In the past, my slogan for joining the Standard Chartered Marathon was「捨命陪兒子」 (My son jumps, I jump!) .  I am glad to tell you that this year’s slogan is 「女兒捨命陪父子」(We jump, my daughter jumps!)  This is the first time my whole family will participate in this meaningful fund-raising race for Portia, as my daughter has returned to Hong Kong after her graduation in London and she is prepared to face this challenge for a good cause, though she has no long-distance running or Marathon experience before.

The donation to the Portia Cheung Breast Cancer Support Programme will be earmarked for direct subsidy to needy breast cancer patients, and every dollar will be given direct to the patients without any administrative or other costs. So far the Programme has given out more than $1,370,000 to subsidise 317 needy breast cancer patients for doing PET-CT Scan to help staging the cancer and for purchasing extra nourishment and breast prosthesis which currently are not funded by the Government or other sources.  Last year (2016) we raised around $320,000 in the Marathon, and the Programme gave out over $380,000 to help 72 needy breast cancer patients. We sincerely hope that with more generous donation this year, we could benefit more needy patients.
