Singapore Cancer Society – TalkMed Relay For Life 2018
Venue: National Stadium, Singapore Sports Hub
Date: 10 – 11 March 2018
Time: 6pm to 9am
Luminaria, SGD 5
Luminarias uplift every life impacted by cancer. You can dedicate them to a loved one lost, someone currently battling, or anyone who’s overcome it. When you attend a Relay event, you’ll see the Luminarias decorated with names or messages for the loved ones.
After dark, Relay participants share an emotional moment when each Luminaria is lit in remembrance of a life impacted by cancer. Together as a community, we observe a moment of silence to remember the loved ones these luminarias are dedicated to. When you make a donation for a Luminaria, it helps fund Singapore Cancer Society’s mission to help save lives.
Ribbon Magnets, SGD 5
These cancer awareness ribbon magnets are handmade with love by our very own volunteers from Singapore Cancer Society. Each colour represents a different cancer type. All 6 coloured ribbon magnets are also available at an exclusive bundle of $25.
Navy Blue - Colorectal Cancer
Quick fact: Regular screening can detect colorectal cancer early. The Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT), is a quick and convenient screening test to detect early stages of colorectal cancer. 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.
Lavender - General Cancer
Quick fact: In Singapore, about 35 people are diagnosed with cancer every day. With early detection and treatment, you can prevent this disease. Some of the known causes of cancer includes genetic makeup, smoking, sun and UV exposure, radiation exposure and previous cancer treatments.
Pink - Breast Cancer
Quick fact: The risk of breast cancer increases with age. 70% of all breast cancers are diagnosed in women aged 40 years and above. Consuming too much red meat and animal fat and too little fibre may increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer.
White - Lung Cancer
Quick fact: Cigarette smoking is the number one risk factor of lung cancer. The risk of having lung cancer increases with the number of cigarettes smoked each day and the duration of smoking. When lung cancer is diagnosed in the early stages, patients have a much higher chance of survival.
Blue - Prostate Cancer
Quick fact: The Walnut Warriors is a support group under SCS that reaches out to men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, providing physical and psychosocial support to members through therapeutic and enrichment programmes. The support group also organises the Man Plan Programme for prostate cancer patients undergoing hormone therapy.
Teal - Ovarian Cancer
Quick fact: The Look Good Feel Better Programme was developed specifically for women undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy. The programme aims to help them minimise and manage the physical changes brought about by cancer treatment. Workshops organised are hands-on and held at various private and public hospitals island-wide.
