Amidst her divorce in 2017, Mdm Soon was diagnosed with breast cancer and lost her job as a result of her cancer diagnosis. The single mother of two young sons faced many challenges.
Fortunately, Mdm Soon’s trusted social worker had referred her to Singapore Cancer Society (SCS). SCS supported her with a range of financial assistance schemes, including the SCS Cancer Care Fund, SCS Welfare Financial Assistance and SCS Transport Service to alleviate financial burden. Her younger son was also enrolled into the SCS Tuition Programme and saw a tremendous improvement in his studies. Both her sons were awarded the SCS Achievement Award in recognition of their significant academic achievements.
The family is now in a better place and Mdm Soon is very grateful towards SCS for all the help.Donate via GIVE.asia
