Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Mar 2016, 12 AM

Each year, an average of 140 children are diagnosed with cancer in Singapore, half with blood cancers like leukaemia, and half with solid cancers like brain tumours.
I have been a huge supporter of VIVA Foundation. I believe that every child deserves a fighting chance to fight cancer. While the survival rate of children with blood cancers has increased due to focused research, medical care and education, more still needs to be done for children with brain and solid tumours.
Research is often an overlooked by the public in terms of support. This December, I am raising funds for VIVA to kick-start a three-year VIVA-KKH Paediatric Brain and Solid Tumour Programme that will focus on finding new and better ways to fight such cancers in children.

About Campaign

Each year, an average of 140 children are diagnosed with cancer in Singapore, half with blood cancers like leukaemia, and half with solid cancers like brain tumours. While the survival rate of children with blood cancers has increased, more still needs to be done for children with brain and solid tumours.
VIVA is partnering with KK Women's and Children's Hospital (KKH) to kick-start a 3-year VIVA-KKH Paediatric Brain and Solid Tumour Programme. This unique programme will focus on finding new and better ways to fight such cancers in children, while trying to minimise the late-life side-effects as possible so they can enjoy a good future.
This programme aims to
1) Improve clinical care for childhood brain and solid cancers,

2) Embark on bench-to-bedside translational clinical research, and

3) Educate and train more specialised doctors and nurses through fellowships and lectureships.

About NPO

VIVA Foundation for Children with Cancer is a Singapore-based charity which focuses on saving the lives of more children with cancer by improving research, medical care and education.
Among the many illnesses and problems in the world, childhood cancer may not get the most of funds, focus and facilities. VIVA Foundation fights to put this on the agenda of institutions, by catalysing research, building state-of the-art facilities, supporting doctors and training nurses.
VIVA Foundation believes by doing so, it will change the way childhood cancers are being diagnosed and treated throughout the region, starting with Singapore. Ultimately, this will ensure more children with cancer, regardless of geography, will have a higher chance of full recovery to live out the full potential of their lives as every child deserves a future.
