My Story

In 2013 I was lucky enough to have a heart operation in Australia, courtesy of East Timor Hearts Fund.  Since the operation my life has changed for the better. I cannot thank enough East Timor Hearts Fund and everyone involved for saving my life and the life of previous ETHF patients. I am now back to school and enjoy life with my family and friends.
I am doing Run Melbourne for so many good reasons: to represent previous ETHF patients; because it is a wonderful cause and event to promote awareness of heart disease; to celebrate my new life since the operation and to inspire previous and future ETHF patients. And of course if I can help raise money and awareness so that Tomas can have heart surgery that will be a wonderful thing."
Since I've found out that there was a possibility of me going to Melbourne to do Run Melbourne I've started training twice a week, and I do more than 10km. Of course I do feel tired a bit but in general I really feel good and healthy. It is something I was not able to do before the operation. For me it is a big achievement. Thank you for giving me second chance in life.
