The NPC Year End Party at NUH on 19 November 2011 was indeed a good time for staffs at NUH and TTSH to mingle with cancer survivors from all ages and races. Although only 6% of NPC patients are Malays, cancer survivors like Affendi and Samad have been coming regularly and we enjoy their fellowship.
MediaCorp Suria channel has kindly covered the story and help to raise awareness of NPC among Malay speaking residents in Singapore. It was good to see all of you joining in the line dancing. I am also very grateful to all my Radiotherapy staffs at NUH and TTSH led by Michelle as part of NCIS to volunteer help on a Saturday afternoon to make the Year End Party a success. Lastly, the organizing committee from Peter, Yvonne, Dave, Yip, Slyvia and Moses had gone the extra mile to make sure everyone had a good time. I am indeed privileged to be able to know and work with all of you.
