“We come together from all walks of life, from many different circumstances. We need not walk alone.”
Who are we?
We are a community of brain tumour patients, caregivers and friends who come together from all walks of life and many different circumstances to support and help each other in our journeys so that no one with a brain tumour would walk alone.
Our society is officially known as Brain Tumour Society (Singapore), BTSS, and was approved by Registry of Society (ROS) on 5 March 2014.
The diagnosis of a brain tumour can be devastating. BTSS patients and caregivers understand this first-hand. We want to share our experience and knowledge to help patients and families at every stage – from the diagnosis to the treatment, rehabilitation and assimilation back to society.
Supporters celebrate the establishment of Brain Tumour Society (Singapore).
How does BTSS help?
- Provide moral and resource support to brain tumour patients and caregivers
- Provide patient education to better inform brain tumour patients and caregivers
- Advocate for better information, welfare, medical treatment and institutional care on behalf of brain tumour patients and caregivers
- Raise public awareness of brain tumours and their effects on patients and the consequent understanding and support that is required from the public, including employers, media and government
- Raise monies to support the causes of the Society
BTSS does not:
- Provide medical advice and consultation services
- Evaluate medical professionals or hospitals
- Promote products and services, example: MLM healthcare products
- Impose our experiences and beliefs on others
