Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Jan 2022, 11:59 PM

Earlier this year I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer. It came as a huge surprise as I am one who regularly does her BSE. I am fundraising to raise awareness that despite all the usual signs we are asked to look out for - feeling a lump, any pain, changes to shape, colour, texture, any discharge or blood etc - you could experience no symptoms and still have breast cancer. I had none of those signs or symptoms and so I count myself very blessed to have good healthcare coverage that allowed for early detection, a talented team of doctors treating me, and the love and support of my friends and family to get thru the surgery and treatment after.

Please do not put off your annual mammogram and breast ultrasound. Early detection saves lives, saves breasts. Breast cancer is now the most common cancer in women. It is sobering to know that 1 in 13 women will get breast cancer at some point in their lives. 1 in 6 cases in Singapore are in women under 45.

I plan to take part in the Pink Ribbon Walk in December to celebrate survivors, remember those we have lost and to raise awareness for the Breast Cancer Society here in Singapore. Will you join me?
