Catur Widodo’s family don’t have an easy time ahead but they are trying to make it as memorable as they can.

They know their beloved husband and father Catur will lose his battle with a rare appendix cancer, and estimates give him half a year.

So the popular Kembla Heights musician’s family are turning to the community to help raise money for a minibus trip around Australia together, to enjoy the time they have left.

Sarah is concerned their young children may lose memories of their dad as the years go by – so they are hoping if they fill his last months with fun and adventure, that would help them stick in the boys’ memory forever.

“We’re doing everything we can just to live every moment and make the most of it for our boys,” she said.

Sarah said the online response to their “love wins” campaign had been moving. “It started out as sharing our story but it’s actually become a movement in its own right now,” she said.

“People are practising acts of love in our honour in what they call a love exchange. It’s growing really organically which is nice. He’s got a big beautiful energy, that’s why he’s got a big following around the world – everyone loves him.”

They are also organising a fundraising reggae festival, called Rasta Gong, at the Kembla Heights Community Hall on Friday, December 16. To help go to https://www.gofundme.com/th9ua48
