On August 9th, I lost my best friend of 16 years and loving wife of 9 years, Susanna Leung, following a short battle with ovarian cancer. She had just celebrated her 39th birthday. Her sudden passing at such a young age is an incredible loss to me and all who knew her.
I am blessed to have been able to share 16 years of my life with Sue, during which time we had many great adventures, travelling the world and working together to build a home. She will be remembered for the passion that she showed in her career, her many sporting achievements and in her friendships. She continued to show exceptional strength and courage throughout her illness in a way that was truly inspirational. I am thankful for the many happy memories that we made together. I am sure I will call upon these during the weeks and months ahead to help me stay strong, as she would have wanted.
The team at UCLH helped to care for Susanna throughout her illness. Any donations you are able to make will help them to further their exceptional work and research so that, one day, others may not have to endure the pain of losing a loved one to cancer.
