Every woman is unique and precious to those whose lives she touches. Today, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in Singapore. 1 in 11 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.* However, with early detection, breast cancer need not be a death sentence. Regular screening is your best defense.
Ladies Circle Singapore fully supports the tremendous work that the Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) does. During an awareness evening held on 27 March 2019, we learned more about risk factors, prevention tips and symptoms to look out for from a medical specialist. In addition, a breast cancer survivor shared her incredible journey in the fight against breast cancer.
The Breast Cancer Awareness Talk was followed by a Wine Tasting hosted by the generous folks at Petersons Wines, where we continued the conversation, and potential members got to know more about what Ladies Circle Singapore stands for.
