Be a Mathemagician!

BTSS was privileged to have coach Priya spend a morning with 10 of our kids on 21 May 2020 over ZOOM video conferencing.  It was a break from this unique lull school holiday season.  In over an hour, coach Priya showed and taught the kids the mathematics behind a trick.  Even though this was the first time that a BTSS kids event has been held virtually, there was little hiccups and everyone participated actively.  It was a productive morning and the kids can’t wait for their second session with coach Priya next week!  Thank you coach Priya for sharing your love for BTSS!

NUSSCSC Grant A Wish – 26 Oct 2019

Our kids met up for the second time with the student volunteers from NUS Students’ Community Club Service for the wish engagement activities at KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital on 26 Oct 2019.  Despite the air conditioning system not working at the Staff Lounge, the kids had fun engaging in craft activities where they made gifts for children from another organisation.  To give is always a blessing which we hope our kids will learn to appreciate.

The finale of this program will happen on 14 December, which is also our Christmas Party!  Watch out for the announcement!

BTSS Tuition Programme

The school year is almost coming to an end, and the weekly group tuition has been concluded. We would like to express our gratitude to Yicheng, Terynn, Jaycinth, Bryan and Sean from Hwa Chong Institution for putting others above themselves to tutor our BTSS kids over the last few months. Having these big brothers and sisters to look up upon, our young beneficiaries had enjoyed the learning journey even more.
We would be back with a tuition program for our BT kids in 2020. Brain tumour kids who are keen to join our programmes should contact our office at for information and arrangements.

Lim Boon Keng The Musical

Our beneficiaries were in for a sensory treat over the period 10-13 Oct 2019 as they were treated to the first ever musical on Lim Boon Keng staged at Victoria Theatre.  This was brought to us by the good people of Musical Theatre Limited.  A BIG Thank You to you MTL!  For some of us, it was the first time experiencing a musical, and for all, a wonderful feast for the eyes, ears and souls.  Such was the power of the musical that had a young active beneficiary sitting still for a full 70 minutes!  Therapy can indeed come in different forms, so thank you again MTL for the blessings you gave to our beneficiaries!

BTSS Children’s Day 2019

On 6 Oct 2019, BTSS celebrated with our wonderful pediatric beneficiaries and their families at the NUS Guild House.  A big group of 45 beneficiaries from 14 families started with a yummy lunch followed by a fun and interesting workshop with the NUS Students’ Community Service Club volunteers.  While the kids were well engaged, parents gathered in a round table fashion to discuss concerns about their kids’ treatments, schooling and future.  What better way to end the day than treating the kids to an old school type of carnival!  The kids had fun playing carnival games and munching on snacks!  Yuan Lin, our beneficiary, even walked off with the third prize at the lucky draw!  BTSS would like to thank the students from NUSSCS for inviting our children in their “Grant A Wish XVII” activity.

BTSS UPDATES (27 Jun 2019)

Dear BTSS Family,

I am pleased to inform you of the following updates on our mission to become an Institute of Public Character (IPC) organisation.


1. Change in entity structure

On 18 April 2019, BTSS took our first step towards IPC by successfully converting from a society to a public company limited by guarantee (CLG).  We are now officially known as Brain Tumour Society (Singapore) Limited. As a CLG, our entity is considered to have a separate legal entity and distinct from its members.  This means that a CLG may sue or be sued in its own name, and the members of the CLG will be protected from any liabilities incurred by the CLG.

As members of our old entity (Brain Tumour Society (Singapore)), you will now be known as our beneficiaries and will continue to participate in our activities and schemes like before.


2. Appointment of Jackie Lee as Manager of BTSS 

We have appointed Jackie Lee as our new Manager.  As a caregiver, Jackie joined our family in 2016.  She became a part of the committee in 2018 and would continue to serve the community as a staff from 10 July 2019. She replaces Angelene who will end her service with us on 9 July 2019.  We thank Angelene for her contributions to BTSS and look forward to welcoming her back as our volunteer.


3. Transition to virtual office

To reduce the operational costs, we will be moving out of the physical office from 10 July 2019.  We would operate as a virtual office.  Contact number and email addresses will stay the same as follows:

BTSS Mobile: 8738 5669
Office Email:


4. Monthly Pledges

The funds raised by our sponsors are mostly for beneficiary spending. As such, we cannot use these to support our day to day office operations. BTSS EXCO and committee members are all volunteers with full time jobs and we need the support of a qualified resource, as well as, working capital to pursue all the work related to our corporate entity and beneficiaries. If everyone in the BTSS community will give even a small sum monthly to support the work BTSS is doing, we will be able to stabilize our cash flow and move on from survival issues to focus on building our entity to serve our brain tumour community better.  Please consider this appeal as a way you can contribute to the work BTSS is doing and aspires to do.  You may find pledging details in the flyer below.


5. New bank account

We have opened a new banking account with Maybank.  The details are as follow:
Account Name : Brain Tumour Society (Singapore) Limited

Account Number : 04181070878

Please use the new name and account number if you wish to donate to us on a one time basis for our operations.
Feel free to reach us on 8738-5669 or if you have any questions.

Stay Positive and Live Strong


Melissa Lim 
President, Brain Tumour Society (Singapore)

Singapore Health Inspirational Patient Award Winner 2015
