Our Campaign Storyends 28 Feb 2019, 11:59 PM
My mother-in-law passed away from cancer in 2018. She was a strong and independent woman before she was diagnosed with lung cancer. The medical treatment took a toll on her and soon, she had to rely on lots of assistance from her family. It was very difficult for me to see her, a woman full of life, becoming weaker and weaker. I wished so much that there was a remedy for cancer.
That's why, when I saw Run for Hope raising funds for researching a cure for cancer, I wanted to be a part of their activities, both taking part in its run and raising funds. I could not help but think of my mother-in-law and others like her and hoping that one day that there would be a cure for cancer.
My 10 years' old son and I will be running in the 3.5km Fun Route in memory of my mother-in-law. So, please support me by donating generously to this worthy cause.
Between 2011 to 2015, more than 64,300 Singaporeans were diagnosed with cancer, out of which 48.6% were men and 51.4% were women. The statistic is alarming and cancer incidences will continue to rise by 5% year-on-year as reported by the Singapore Cancer Registry. With so many in our community being affected by cancer, there is an urgent need to find a cure for this disease.
Support from each of you is vital to helping National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) make advancements in cancer research.
NCCS and Four Seasons Hotel Singapore will partner once again to host Run for Hope, an annual mega run for cancer awareness and research. We hope to have our loyal supporters and runners join us once again at this event to send a unified message that cancer cannot be beaten alone, it needs a community! Net proceeds raised from this event will be directed towards cancer research at NCCS whose doctors and researchers are working hard to find a cure.
If your are unable to participate in Run for Hope but would like to support cancer research, we invite you to make a gift through Giving.sg today! Every dollar will help NCCS move one step closer to winning the war against cancer.
