2014 was a milestone for the Singapore Cancer Society as we celebrated 50 years of Minimising Cancer and Maximising Life in Singapore. The journey may have begun 5 decades ago but with each succeeding generation, our mission has been passed on and carried forward in an unbroken line of service.
Singapore Cancer Society goes Lavender: A 50th Anniversary Celebration
SCS marked its 50th Anniversary launch on World Cancer Day, 4 February 2014, at the Lavender MRT Station with “Singapore Cancer Society goes Lavender: A 50th Anniversary Celebration”. With the kind support of SMRT Corporation, we showcased SCS’ rich history at Lavender MRT from 30 January to 26 February. The showcase was officially launched by Minister for Health, Mr Gan Kim Yong, where he also took the opportunity to launch our FIT50 programme to the public.
FIT50, comprising 3 types of cancer screening tests, was made available at no cost to those turning 50 to encourage them to stay healthy and to go for regular screening.
