I am raising S$40,000 for 40 charities by the time I turn 40 in 2017. Simply put, 40k for 40 by 40! I have already donated S$4,000 of my own funds to these charities and I hope you will participate in this effort. This charity is one of the 40 beneficiaries. Thank you for helping to make this difference.
The Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) was established in 1964 by individuals from the Rotary Club of Singapore West, the Lions Club and Jaycees, and was inaugurated by the then Minster of Health, Mr Yong Nyuk Lin.
Registered as a society in 1984 and accorded IPC (Institution of a Public Character) status as a charity in 1995 by the Ministry of Health, the Society is also a member of the National Council of Social Service and the Singapore Hospice Council. SCS celebrated 50 years of service in 2014. Being self-funded, the Society is heavily dependent on public donations to provide quality services to cancer patients, their families, and members of the public.
To be the leading charitable cancer organisation in Singapore and the region, with a reputation for effective programmes for the prevention and control of cancer.
Singapore Cancer Society is a community-based voluntary welfare organisation dedicated to maximising life by minimising the impact of cancer through research and advocacy, public education, screening, financial assistance, patient services and support, and rehabilitation.
To be the first port of call for the entire cancer journey for all cancer patients in Singapore, especially those who are financially disadvantaged.
