About Us

Officially launched in May 2016, the Sarcoma Support Group is established by the multi-disciplinary Sarcoma team at the NCIS in collaboration with the National Cancer Centre Singapore, KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital and the Singapore Sarcoma Consortium. It aims to reach out to Sarcoma patients, survivors and their caregivers.

Our Mission

Sarcoma is one of the lesser known cancers in Singapore and it affects patients across a trajectory of ages from the very young, to old. The aim of the Support Group is to provide shared resources for emotional and psychological support, where invaluable knowledge and experience can be shared with patients and their caregivers.

The Sarcoma Support Group aims to provide a safe and comforting environment that allows for interaction and shared experiences amongst patients and caregivers who face difficulties in coping with the diagnosis, treatment and side effects.

We hope to create a network that unites, inspires and provides support through the challenges that patients and caregivers face.

What We Have To Offer

  • Information and support on current treatments, coping strategies and rehabilitation to patients and caregivers
  • A platform to bond and network with fellow cancer patients and survivors
  • Access to other cancer survivors who can share their experience and knowledge battling and managing the disease

Activities & Programmes

  • Twice yearly support group meetings / activities
  • Informal sharing sessions
  • Quarterly educational talks
