The late Martin See Tho was wheelchair-bound in 2001 due to Machado Joseph Disease, an incurable degenerative disorder that robbed him of his career, ability to stand, balance, speak and eat.

Despite it all, Martin learnt digital painting in 2005 and won his recognition as a Singapore Signature Digital Artist when he had his first solo art exhibition in 2007. At the heart of Martin's dynamic, bold and inspiring digital art pieces lay the notions of love and compassion - the unwavering pillars of strength that rejuvenated and anchored his purpose of existence despite the storms in his life.

This book is Martin's poignant, intensely moving testimony of living life to the fullest till the very last moment visualised by his Art. It is a compilation of hope, optimism and immeasurable grit, made possible only by the sheer and unflinching love and conviction of a wife, caregiver, and soulmate, Sandra Choo.

Proceeds go towards NNI Fund (part of SingHealth Fund, UEN No. 201624016E) for Patient Care, Research, Education and other unmet needs.

About the Charity

Transform Lives. Improve Care.

National Neuroscience Institute (NNI) cares for close to 80% of patients seen in Singapore's public healthcare sector for conditions affecting the brain, spine, nerves and muscles. These conditions change people's lives forever. Some patients lose control of their body functions. Others suffer memory loss. Eventually, many lose both.

The World Health Organisation predicts that by 2040, neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia and Parkinson's disease will overtake cancer to become the second leading cause of death after cardiovascular disease.* We need your help to stop these diseases from shattering more lives.

Together, we can do more by enhancing care treatments and supporting patients in financial need, accelerating medical research discoveries, advancing medical training for healthcare professionals and other unmet needs - to offer our patients hope in their fight to live.

The NNI Fund is part of SingHealth Fund, an Institution of Public Character (UEN No. 201624016E).
