Man loses wife to cancer, sells his precious Star Wars collection for charity

By August 16, 2017Current

TL;DR- “If my dearest wife was still around, she will tag me for sure. But now I am just a sad daddy and my life will never be complete again.”

Boy meets girl. Couple gets married. Have a baby boy together.

But this fairy tale doesn’t end with happily ever after.

A year after their son was born, Camella Fong was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine metastasis cancer.

They tried surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy but Jeremy Sim eventually lost his wife and mother of his two-year-old son to the disease.

In a Facebook post, Jeremy shared that it was Camella’s wish to to donate her belongings to charity but he has decided to donate his precious Star Wars collection instead, and keep her belongings for memory.

The fundraising event “In Memory of Camella Fong Chia Mee” will be organised by Star Wars 501st Singapore Garrison and proceeds will go to KKH Health Fund.

The event will be held at:

Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention – STGCC 2017

Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre Halls D, E & F

9th September 2017, 10am to 8pm

Here are some of the items that he will be giving up:

Our hearts go out to the family 🙁
