Our Campaign Storyends 31 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM
Thank you very much for taking interest and spending some time to learn about this campaign.
Fighting cancer has always been daunting process for both patients and their loved ones. It is an emotional and physical battle involving much patience, courage and hope. This occured to me and people around me as well, family and friends when I was diagnosed with 3rd stage uterus cancer in November 2021 at the age of 29, just over a year of marriage.The doctors have advised that I had to undergo two major high risk surgeries at once in December 2021.
The claim process has been delayed by insurer as I only got my insurance just a few months before my diagnosis, my husband and I had to make full upfront payment for surgery and hospitalisation of 13 days and it has been taking a tow on us in our cash flow since then. With this, I would like to take this opportunity to raise funds for cancer warriors and their families in need and those that do not have insurance policies to cover the hefty medical charges.
Any donation would be greatly appreciated. The funds collected will be donated to the Singapore Cancer Society. They have been providing great support to cancer patients, conducting cancer research, and many other inspiring activities. For more info, feel free to read about them on the Singapore Cancer Society website.
