Established in 1964, Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) is a self-funded voluntary welfare organisation which is dedicated to minimising the impact of cancer in Singapore through the provision of cancer treatment subsidies, financial and welfare aid to needy cancer patients, home hospice care services for terminally-ill cancer patients, as well as rehabilitation support programmes for recovering cancer patients and cancer survivors . In addition, the Society also provides free cancer screening services and promotes cancer awareness and prevention through its public education and community outreach programmes.
Annually, the SCS helps more than 1,000 needy cancer patients and reaches out to more than 50,000 individuals through its cancer screening, public educational and community outreach programmes. Since its launch in April 2005, the SCS Cancer Treatment Fund has disbursed $15.4 million to subsidise the costs of chemotherapy and IMRT treatment to more than 4,635 needy cancer patients. SCS welfare patients receive assistance in the form of financial aid and medical supplies such as milk feeds and stoma bags to help them tide over the difficult periods in their lives. Each year, SCS needs about $21 million to run its programmes and services. Your donation will go a long way to assist our beneficiaries, giving them hope for the future.
