How this website came to be
After Harold’s passing on the 13th June 2018, a few of Harold’s friends from ACS (Independent) decided to get together and reflect on how Harold has been an inspiration for us. After speaking with his family, we decided to setup this website to collect and share the stories of Harold’s journey against cancer, and the impact he has left in many of us. There were many lessons that Harold taught us in his spirited life. We hope that this website might be able to capture Harold’s inspirational journey against cancer, and give inspiration for those who might be suffering from the debilitating effects of sarcoma, or supporting another one suffering from cancer.
Harold’s last message for us is that that he loves all of us. In the same light, we hope to pass the love on. We hope that in browsing the site, you will find inspiration from Harold’s life, fighting agains the odds.
