About Campaign

Breast cancer is the top cancer affecting women in Singapore. With early detection and treatment, breast cancer is highly treatable and curable. Yet many low-income women 40 years & above don't undergo the gold standard life-saving mammogram; as their daily struggles and priorities don't allow them to do so.

#My1stMammo is a campaign jointly organised by Icon Cancer Centre (Icon) and 365 Cancer Prevention Society (365CPS). The campaign aims to avail seamless access to women from lower-income families to a sponsored mammogram, complete with pre and post- screening doctor's consultation at a SATA centre. We are partnering with various community groups and social service agencies, to ensure these women 40 years & above are identified and invited for a sponsored screening. Typically, a subsidised or complimentary mammogram in Singapore is only accorded to those 50 years & above.

A $100 donation will give a needy woman a seamless, hassle-free access for a mammogram together with a pre and post-screening consultations with a doctor. That could mean providing an early detection to breast cancer to a woman who may be a mother, daughter, sister or caregiver. Any excess funds will be directed to supporting the Society's tri-fold mission.

In this year 2021 of Celebrating SG Women, let's Pay-It-Forward and sponsor a #My1stMammo today! Your act of kindness can give a woman a peace of mind in fighting cancer, and invest in the cancer education works by 365CPS.

About the Charity

365 Cancer Prevention Society is a registered full member of the Singapore National Council of Social Service (NCSS) with an Institution of Public Character (IPC) status.

Our mission is to serve the community through our tri-fold mission- Cancer Prevention, Cancer Fighting and Cancer Education.

We believe that cancer can be prevented and we seek to accomplish this through health and nutrition education, active promotion of healthy lifestyles and regular lymphatic detox exercise programs.

In the fight against cancer, we provide practical and emotional support and care for our patients and their family members through residential and hospital visitations, counselling and wellness services. Financial assistance is also given to low income families to help ease financial burdens of cancer patients and their family members, and to encourage them to keep battling towards recovery.

Cancer education is important as well and we seek to achieve this through educating the public on cancer-related issues through our corporate and community health talks. These initiatives are designed to raise awareness and preparedness towards protection against cancer.

As a non-profit organization, 365CPS relies on public donations to fund all its services and programmes. Let us unite as we work towards providing holistic support for our patients and promoting greater cancer awareness and healthy living lifestyles. Join us in our fight against cancer today!
