Great is winning every fight, every time. Reach for Great.

Join in our fundraising drive towards the Singapore Cancer Society's 'Return to Role' rehabilitation programme as we help the brave cancer survivors to win the fight, get back on their feet and continue to #ReachforGreat.

From virtual or physical rehabilitation sessions, to compression arm sleeves, your donation will make a difference for these brave cancer survivors.

Great Eastern will match a dollar-for-dollar corporate contribution and donate up to a total of S$50,000 in addition to the funds raised to support this cause.

This fundraising drive will run from now till 31 December 2022.
Every dollar counts when we give as a community.

About Campaign

1 in 4 Singaporeans are likely to develop cancer by age 75*, but many are not aware of the physical and emotional challenges faced by cancer patients and survivors in their daily lives.

Rehabilitation plays a huge part in addressing these challenges so that survivors can regain normalcy by resuming their day-to-day activities. SCS Return to Role is a rehabilitation programme that helps their brave survivors get back on their feet and return to their roles in the family; as parents, grandparents, spouses, students, caregivers, and many more.
