About Campaignends 30 Sep 2022, 11:59 PM
Over the past 58 years, SCS has established itself as a community-based voluntary welfare organisation dedicated to minimising the impact of cancer and maximising lives through research and advocacy, public education, screening, financial assistance, patient services and support, and rehabilitation. Every year, SCS needs to raise at least $20 million to drive our programmes and services to provide a holistic support system for the cancer community. We would not have been able to achieve this without the strong support from the public and corporate partners.
Your generous contribution will empower SCS to give hope and strength to our beneficiaries in their fight against cancer. All proceeds raised at the charity gala dinner will be channelled to SCS' patient care services.
