BTSS Christmas Party 2019 was a joyous occasion which saw a record turnout of more than 100 beneficiaries, volunteers and friends at KKH Staff Lounge on 14 Dec 2019. From 9 am, enthusiastic volunteers put up decorations and set up the tables and presents. We had 2 parallel events running – a children’s party that was led by the amazing volunteers from the NUS Community Service Club and the other by energetic Karishma who soon had everyone engaged and laughing together. A big THANK YOU to Disney Singapore for the generous donation of merchandise. Each child went home happily with a bag of surprises! Special thanks to Smyth, Nam and some volunteers who blessed gifts for everyone, including delicious home-baked cookies. It is so wonderful to see our BTSS family growing in size and even closer to each other as we work together on various programmes and advocacy projects for the betterment of our community.
Did you know, the first International Brain Tumour Awareness Week was 10 years ago? It has been a decade since we have begun to raise global awareness for this deadly disease, but much work still remains.
The International Brain Tumour Awareness Week this year runs from 20 to 27 October 2018. As Singapore’s community of brain tumour beneficiaries and volunteers, BTSS stands together with all those whose lives are affected by brain tumours, whether they be patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, corporations and other stakeholders from around the world.
Come join us this year in our annual Brainy Car Rally to raise awareness about brain tumours through a slew of exciting activities. On 21 Oct 2018, Singapore’s Brain Tumour Awareness Day, stand with us and the rest of the world for the Brain Tumour cause.
Dear BTSS Family
I am thrilled and proud to announce that BTSS has been selected by Morgan Stanley Singapore as their 2018 & 2019 core charity partner (I hear thundering applause and lots of cheers coming from you guys as I write this).
Morgan Stanley would be our very first corporate partner coming after four years of hard work since our establishment in March 2014. Like me, you must be very heartened that we now have a strong global bank supporting BTSS in fund raising and volunteerism. What’s more encouraging is that the Morgan Stanley staff, whom I have met, resonate with our brain tumour cause and are eager to help BTSS make meaningful contributions that will yield greater impact on our community.
As this marks a significant milestone for BTSS, our brain tumour cause and community, I am sure you would agree that a special celebration is in order. To do this, let’s all gather on the 12 May 2018 for the Morgan Stanley Charity Walkathon. Morgan Stanley’s leaders, employees and families will be raising funds for BTSS though this event and they have invited all our BTSS patients and families to join them on this joyous occasion to kick start our partnership.
Details of the event are as follows:
Morgan Stanley Charity Walkathon
Date: Saturday, 12 May 2018
Time: 7.45am to 11.30 am
