Personal Challenge

Run for hope - race against cancer!

My Story

Hi there! My name is Gale - an ordinary 31 year old living in Singapore. During last year July, I was diagnosed as having stage 4 breast cancer. Abit of a road bump but, thanks to the tremendous support of family and friends, I am now well. Yayy!

Now that I am chemo free for almost 2 months, I can't wait to get back on my feet hence I've signed up for the 5km run in Race Against Cancer as a tribute to all my supporters, celebration... ...& also to give back. The thought of fundraising came during my own course of treatment. Cancer treatment is expensive. Very very expensive. If it is not by God's grace I would have struggled with the medical bills too. And for anyone to make a life and death decision because of financial decision is just heartbreaking.

Monies donated to Singapore Cancer Society not only fuel education and research, they are also use to provide financial assistance to needy cancer patients so that everyone can get a fair fighting chance.

Q: Why SGD3,500?
A: Because that was the approximate amount a chemo combination cost per visit. So lets donate to help at least one patient pay for one chemo session!

Q: When can you donate?
A: Anytime from now till 2 months after 13-Sept-2015 i.e. Nov? But why wait when you can do something great today?

And just in case you don't feel like giving money/ can't afford to give, then please post a shout-out in Facebook, Twitter etc. so that someone, somewhere can be made aware of this opportunity to contribute and make good.

Thanks for the support & God bless!

P/s: I'll also be participating in 2 more events from now leading to the actual Race Against Cancer day; one for every month of fundraising. So do stay tune for some photos updates!

However as the main reason for this fundraising drive is to serve as a tribute to all my supporters, celebration & giving back, I am still planning to complete another 5km as and when the haze situation has turned better. (Updated: 20-Sept-2015)

Finally, thank God for lifting the haze & allowing me to put on the race against cancer t-shirt to run today. Thanks also to those that have supported this fundraising cause. Love u guys so much! (Updated: 26-Sept-2015)

Following an invitation from Singapore Cancer Society to continue fundraising I have decided to change the fundraising platform so to provide a more cost effective fundraising. Once again I would like to thank everyone for the support and please continue to give hope and spread love at http://www.giveasia.org/movement/give_hope_and_spread_love (Updated: 2-Oct-2015)
