About Campaign

ends 30 Sep 2017, 11:59 PM

Like many who have been touched by cancer in one way or another, I often imagine a world free of this disease. Cancer is considered the most feared disease in the world and in Singapore, it accounts for 1 in 3 deaths.

Through family and friends, I have met many cancer patients who have endured trying times with a mountain of optimism and courage, and I've also seen first-hand the dedicated work of hospital staff. At the same time, we remember our departed loved ones who fought valiantly and who remind us why we can never stop this fight.

This year, I am making a personal commitment to raise funds for cancer research. I will be participating in a 10km run every month, culminating in the Reading Triathlon in the UK on 3rd Sept 2017. It's my way of paying it forward, for the exceptional care my mum had received from NCCS during her treatment there. (My mum is an amazing lady by the way!). Follow my journey here https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=671600348.

Continued research is critical for a cancer-free future. The NCC Research Fund invests heavily in translational and clinical research programs, supporting young doctors who have big ideas as well as established scientists who are making important strides in their field.

Please join me in supporting cancer research. I hope you will give generously and spread the word! With your help, one day soon, the hardships and heartaches wrought by cancer will come to an end. May we all LIVE LONG & PROSPER!
