Ex­pert Care


Singapore Tatler - - FACES -

The Na­tional Univer­sity Can­cer In­sti­tute, Sin­ga­pore (NCIS) cel­e­brated its 10th an­niver­sary with a fundrais­ing gala din­ner at the Shangri-la Ho­tel, Sin­ga­pore last Novem­ber. NCIS has come a long way since its early days as an am­bu­la­tory ser­vice to be­come a one-stop fa­cil­ity pro­vid­ing holis­tic and com­pre­hen­sive pae­di­atric and adult can­cer care, man­age­ment and treat­ment. Dur­ing the din­ner, 27-year-old can­cer sur­vivor Joseph Lee shared on­stage how he over­came two re­lapses with fierce tenac­ity, and the help of an ex­pert team of doc­tors and a sup­port­ive fam­ily. To fur­ther its pur­suit of pro­vid­ing ex­cel­lent care and help­ing pa­tients nav­i­gate the com­plex­i­ties of can­cer, NCIS will launch a yet-tobe-named mo­bile app in Q2 this year, made avail­able first to its breast and colorec­tal can­cer pa­tients.
