Singapore Cancer Society
 
 
Dear friends of SCS,
 
While as a nation we unite to fight the COVID-19 situation, here at Singapore Cancer Society (SCS), we continue to rally hope and support to improve the lives of the cancer community.

Cancer patients and survivors may encounter more challenges amidst this situation in Singapore. As such, SCS is continuing to address the needs of our beneficiaries undergoing treatment and rehabilitation.
 
At SCS, the fight for a cancer-free community never stops.
 
We are heartened to see so many of you come together in solidarity to show that “No one fights cancer alone” by participating in the SCS-TalkMed Relay For Life (RFL) Virtual 100km Challenge that took place between 21 – 29 March 2020.
 
Many participants came forward to continue the spirit of RFL online and provide inspiration in support of the cancer community. The event raised over $800,000.
 
Funds raised goes to support our programmes and services for our beneficiaries like Mdm Kamsiah and her husband. With the aid of SCS Financial Assistance Schemes, SCS lifted the heavy burden on their finances which allowed them to focus on their recovery.
 
Everyone can each play a part to help contribute to the cancer community. The cancer journey can be extremely challenging but with your support, no one needs to fight cancer alone.
 
More can be done to improve the lives of the cancer community.
 
We look forward to your continued support to the many cancer beneficiaries that we serve.

Colorectal cancer is the leading cancer affecting both men and women in Singapore. Polyps, benign lumps that may form on the inner wall of the colon and rectum, are fairly common in people above the age of 50. These may develop into cancer and should be removed if detected. Colorectal polyps and cancers can be detected by the traces of blood that are bled into the colon. The Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) is a preliminary test that detects the presence of small amounts of blood in faeces. This test is available in a simple kit that can be carried out in the comfort of your own home. SCS distributes FIT kits, without charge, to eligible Singaporeans and Permanent Residents.
