39 year old Prajeed was impressed with the services done by Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) for the cancer community that he decided to volunteer.

He said, “Cancer is the leading cause of death in Singapore. It is very common for someone to know someone affected by cancer. Cancer is also one of the costliest medical conditions. Apart from burden of expensive cancer diagnosis and medication, patient also face physical and psychological problems associated with the cancer treatment. So I chose to give back to the cancer community as it is a social commitment.”

He has volunteered with SCS for cancer awareness talks, signature events and many other events that require volunteer assistance. “SCS trains the volunteers and assigns us different roles. By volunteering I also feel that I have become more confident. By being able to make a difference to the life of others in the community, I feel valued and part of the society. Sharing my time to do this makes me feel good. It also helps them build new friendships and widens their support network,” said Prajeed.

He added, “There is so much one can do. There is a wide variety of volunteer positions available, from raising funds through sporting activities, to reaching out to others through community visits and event support. Everyone can do their part.”
