About the Charity
Established in 1964, Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) is a self-funded voluntary welfare organisation which provides patient care services to needy cancer patients through its welfare, hospice home care, cancer treatment subsidy and rehabilitation support programmes.

- To reduce the incidence of cancer
- To increase survival rates
- To improve the quality of life of cancer patients and survivors
