Your gift will allow the Community Cancer Fund to optimise patient care through patient welfare, public education programmes and patient support group activities including:
I. Helping patients who are challenged even with the essential resources and support to facilitate best possible care at home while receiving cancer treatments. For example, needy patients who require mobility assistance often default on treatments and follow up sessions due to the inability to afford costly taxi/ambulance fares.
II. HeARTS - Healing Arts, a group art therapy programme that helps young children and teens whose parents have pass away from cancer, to express profound feeling of grief through Art Therapy. Through therapy, they could help convey their inner and difficult emotions and allow medical social workers to explore and discuss issues bring forth by the loss of the parent.
III. Cancer Genetics Service that enable high risk patients who meet eligibility for genetic testing so that they could be better informed about their future care and /or preventive measures for themselves and their family members. As up to 30% of all cancers are caused by inherited gene mutations, there is a pressing need to devise better methods of cancer detection, prevention and treatment.

The National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) treats 70% of public cancer patients, attending to over 150,000 patient visits each year. From the moment someone is diagnosed and throughout their treatment, we are with them, providing patients with the very best care, by the best people, in the best place. The Community Cancer Fund was established to help support cancer patients in need. The Fund supports financial assistance for patients who need it, and a Cancer Helpline, staffed by trained Nurse Counsellors, which provides cancer patients and caregivers with a listening ear, information and support. We also support education programmes and publications for the general public, so that more people know about the signs and symptoms of cancer and how to prevent it. Cancer is the number 1 killer in Singapore, accounting for more than 1 in 4 deaths. You can do your bit for the community by joining us in the fight against cancer. Please note that in the event that the donations made for a specific purpose have no new applicable project to support after a 2-year waiting period, the Community Cancer Fund Board of Trustees reserves the right to channel these donations to the Fund's general pool in support of its charitable objectives.
