Did you know, the first International Brain Tumour Awareness Week was 10 years ago? It has been a decade since we have begun to raise global awareness for this deadly disease, but much work still remains.
The International Brain Tumour Awareness Week this year runs from 20 to 27 October 2018. As Singapore’s community of brain tumour beneficiaries and volunteers, BTSS stands together with all those whose lives are affected by brain tumours, whether they be patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, corporations and other stakeholders from around the world.
Come join us this year in our annual Brainy Car Rally to raise awareness about brain tumours through a slew of exciting activities. On 21 Oct 2018, Singapore’s Brain Tumour Awareness Day, stand with us and the rest of the world for the Brain Tumour cause.
Married for 30 years and blessed with two sons, Peter was shocked when his wife, Sindy was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Determined to maintain a positive outlook for the sake of his wife and children, Peter decided to attend regular support group meetings to learn how to be a proper caregiver for his wife.
Sindy fought hard, tackling each treatment and surgery with courage. Sadly, she passed away in March 2018, surrounded by family and friends. In dedication to his wife’s memory, Peter has continued to attend support group meetings so that he could provide the same support the group has provided to other caregivers struggling to care for their loved ones.
The journey of fighting and recovering from brain tumours is often an isolating one for patients and their families. If you know someone who needs support and advice from Brain Tumour Society Singapore (BTSS), please connect them to us.
Show your support for BTSS by coming down for our Brainy Car Rally on 21 October 2018. We have interactive games and booths for everyone! Attend this meaningful event to your friends and family, we hope to see you there!
Along with adrenaline-charged Supercars, one of the key highlights of BCR would definitely be the light up installation! Attendees may light up a bottle to show their support for brain tumour awareness. These bottles will be placed in a special exhibition shaped like a brain. Are you excited to show your support for brain tumour awareness?
