About Campaignends 31 Oct 2022, 11:59 PM
According to the Health Promotion Board's National Population Health Survey 2019, only 39% of Singaporean women aged 50 to 69 have had a screening mammogram over the past two years. More needs to be done to encourage women to attend mammogram as Early Detection Saves Lives.
As part of our efforts to improve breast cancer screening rate and reduce the possible complications associated with late diagnosis, Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) provides a $25 funding assistance to eligible Singaporeans and PRs who gets their mammogram done in the month of April, May, October and November. SCS Clinic @ Bishan, also provides all year-round mammogram to eligible women from low-income families at no cost.
Cancer never sleeps and the fight is ongoing. Your generous donation will help to encourage mammogram take up and lessen the impact of cancer in our community in the future.
