About Campaign

Cancer affects 1% of children but affects 5-7% of Adolescent and Young Adult* (AYA), a group of patients aged 16-45 years old who often face the most social, emotional, financial, and physical challenges, yet are often neglected**. According to an annual report published by the Singapore Cancer Registry, the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) sees between 450 and 550 new AYA cancer cases each year.

It can be isolating to be diagnosed with cancer at a young age, especially when practical concerns such as building a career, marriage, fertility, financial capacity etc. can be daunting for these group of young patients.

The Building for Hope campaign aims to create awareness and support for AYA cancer patients. Through this campaign, we hope to raise funds for AYA programmes to help them overcome these challenges.

Your generosity and support are crucial in our mission to #BuildingForHope for AYAs so they don't fight cancer alone.

Join us on this journey and show your support for AYAs affected by cancer today!

About the Charity

Someone in Singapore is diagnosed with cancer every hour. For many, a cancer diagnosis is an emotional and difficult time. The NCCS Cancer Fund (NCCSCF) helps support the fight against cancer by providing financial assistance for needy patients, ensuring sufficient funding for NCCS scientists and clinicians to continue their work in cancer research and promotes cancer education for healthcare professionals and the general public.

NCCS helps over 26,000 cancer patients each year. From the moment they are diagnosed and throughout their treatment we are with them, providing the very best care, by the best people, in the best place.
