Hello readers of NCIS Stories of Hope!
The year is once again coming to an end and we hope that it has been a fruitful one for you. We birthed our NCIS Stories of Hope in November last year and now, NCIS Stories of Hope is finally a year old and we celebrate it with the eleven courageous cancer warriors who have shared their cancer journeys with us and all of you out there, to let everyone know that the battle with cancer can be fought and won, and that hope is all around.
Everyone’s journey with cancer is different, but one thing’s the same – it isn’t an easy one. With each unique individual we feature, we hope at least one of them will be able to touch your heart, and make your journey an easier one, knowing that someone else has treaded the same path and conquered it.
Just last month, we held our annual NCIS Celebrates Life Survivorship Party which was themed “Carnival of Hope”. This event is organised specially for our patients, survivors and their caregivers, to gather everyone from all our support groups for an afternoon of bonding and fun, and to celebrate lives that cannot be diminished by cancer.
This year’s celebrations were made even more special, as four of our NCIS Stories of Hope cancer warriors – Mr Seow Tiang Keng from Issue 1, Yvonne from Issue 4, Nita from Issue 5 and Li Leng from Issue 6, were down to lend their support by sharing their individual experience with cancer on stage.
