World Cancer Day 2nd February 2013

Hi everyone,

I would like to extend an invitation to join NCIS in the World Cancer Day event from 4-8p.m on the 2nd February 2013.

For those who had cancer, winning against the fight for cancer is a significant event in their lives. For those who has no cancer, there is a 1 in 4 chance of cancer occurring during their lifetime. For those who work with cancer patients, it has been our desire and goal to cure cancers and to celebrate this event. For those who cannot be cured, it is our goal to make the process of living with cancer easier and to make the end of life event bearable and peaceful. For all these reason, the World Cancer Day is marked on February 4 not only to  raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment but also to stand together as one to mark this event and to be proud of being a healthcare worker and a cancer survivor. 

These are some of the websites for info:

All are welcome.

For NPC patients, I have organised a special transport with NCIS Corp Comm to make a bus available at 4p.m  to transport all of you who are going to the TCM talk on the 2nd Feb at NUH Tower block lobby. The TCM talk will last from 2-4p.m. At 4p.m, please come down on time to the Tower block lobby to board the bus to West  Coast park. There will also be bus transport back to NUH Tower block at 730p.m and to Kent Ridge MRT. 

For the TCM talk, it will be interesting to come and learn more and to invite your other friends as well from other hospitals or who have other cancers besides NPC as the topic should be general use of TCM in cancer and specifically at Radiotherapy related side effects.
