About Campaignends 30 Jun 2021, 11:59 PM
Globally, Jeans For Genes was first established in 1992 by the Chronic Granulomatous Disorder (CGD) Society in UK to fundraise for diverse group of hereditary diseases. Today, it is a national appeal in countries around the world to fund revolutionary research that helps diagnose, understand, and find cures or treatments for various genetic conditions.
In Singapore, the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) has launched it on World DNA Day, 25 April 2019, in a bid to increase awareness for hereditary causes of diseases such as cancer as well as other hereditary conditions.
Funds raised will be used to drive research, expand knowledge and advance care for those with increased genetic risk of developing cancer.
NCCS hopes this campaign will lead to increased awareness for cancer as well as non-cancer inherited conditions where much further research is needed.
Singaporeans are encouraged to unite and celebrate Jeans For Genes day on 25 April, World DNA Day, by wearing their favorite jeans or wearing blue, making a donation and purchasing Jeans For Genes merchandise to join in the fight against cancer.
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 helps support the fight against cancer by supporting patient care, cancer research and cancer education. 30% of funds will be used to cover operating expenses.
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.
