In July 1999, I made one of the big decisions in my life to move from Jakarta to Seattle to pursue a career in software development, joining my brother Abi who had been living in the area for some time. My youngest brother, Adiyasa Harbani (Ade), said that he was excited to visit us some day soon, hopefully in the upcoming winter.
Two months later, I received news from my parents that Ade had to be hospitalized due to seizures. The doctors found out that he had brain tumor. Several weeks later, after receiving two brain surgeries, in September 1999, Ade passed away.
On October 7th, 2018, I will be remembering my beloved brother Adiyasa Harbani, by running the Chicago Marathon, participating in the American Brain Tumor Association's Team Breakthrough Endurance program. Money raised will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supporting patient care.
Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. You can support me in my efforts by making a donation to the American Brain Tumor Association.
On behalf of Ade, I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation on your support. Any amount will make a difference.
