Gert is one of our avid windsurfers here in Malta - though he now works in cancer research in England. Nevertheless, if there is a good forecast here at home over a weekend he will do his best to fly out for a few days to catch the wind!
Last year there was a very big breakthrough in cancer research dealing with prostate cancer. This made World headline news and ofcourse big news here in Malta since it was one of our own home grown boys on the team! I also did blog about it here on my blog back in August or September some time I think.
In order to raise funds towards this type of research Gert is going to be doing a Skydive which will be financed totally out of his own pocket. All donations he receives will go straight to research.
You can read more about it on this link - it is an interesting read.
