My Cancer Story
“I want to inspire and encourage more cancer patients and survivors to think positively and to live an active and fulfilling life, a life of no regrets.”.
Singapore Cancer Society’s Help the Children & Youth Programme
The SCS Help the Children and Youth Programme aims to help children and youths whose lives have been affected by cancer. The programme assists children and youth who may be cancer patients themselves or whose parents are cancer patients or SCS beneficiaries.
At Singapore Cancer Society, we believe that life is precious. Statistics on this disease are startling: 35 cases of cancer diagnosed every day, and cancer remains to be the Number 1 Killer in Singapore, with 1 in 3 that dies from cancer each year.
We run to honour those who are battling with this disease. We run to maximize the lives of those we are running for. We run in hope to minimize the impact of cancer of those in the fight. We run for ourselves - to declare the fight against cancer with our lifestyle for a healthier, cancer-free life.
Race Against Cancer
Singapore Cancer Society
Singtel-Singapore Cancer Society Race Against Cancer (RAC) 2016 is a race to save lives – Organised by Singapore Cancer Society (SCS), Singtel-Singapore Cancer Society Race Against Cancer (RAC) aims to raise funds for cancer treatment subsidies, welfare assistance, cancer rehabilitation, hospice care, free cancer screenings, research and public education initiatives.
Taking place for the 8th year since 2009, Singtel-Singapore Cancer Society Race Against Cancer (RAC) exists to make our statement against cancer, to minimize cancer and maximize life. No one should fight cancer alone - this event invites people of all walks of life to join in the fight and run alongside those who are impacted by cancer.
Programmes and services that we are hoping to drive include the Cancer Care Fund, Cancer Rehabilitation Centre,
SCS Cancer Treatment Fund, SCS Help the Children and Youth Programme and the SCS Welfare Aid.
The Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) was founded in 1964, registered as a society in 1984 and has IPC (Institution of a Public Character) status as a charity since 1995. SCS is endorsed by the Ministry of Health and is a member of the National Council of Social Service and Singapore Hospice Council.
The Society has just celebrated its 50th birthday and is on a continued mission to defend and uphold the life and dignity of every person directly or indirectly impacted by cancer, journeying along with cancer patients through the different life stages – from early detection to end-of-life care.
The Society is a self-funded charity which organises various fundraising activities, including Race Against Cancer, to rally the community to join in the fight, raising funds to support us in providing quality services to cancer patients, their families and the public.
