  • Aly, 51

    I’m an 8-year boobless breast cancer survivor with 2 teen daughters. Catching cancer early is key. The more we talk about cancer, the less scared we’ll be to get that lump checked. Fortunately, with excellent insurance, I didn’t worry about paying for treatment. Being part of Fashion For Cancer means I can help raise funds to those who need it.

    Personal Motto: If not for yourself, then for those you love - get checked.

  • Christopher, 40

    I was diagnosed with leukemia. I saw this event in 2023 and I feel that having walked the path as a cancer patient to survivor. I have to showcase that recovery towards better health is possible and keeping our mind positive is crucial when one is unwell.

    Personal Motto: YODO. You only die once. Treasure every day, when you are alive.

  • Deborah, 37

    I have stage 4 breast cancer. I am in remission with ongoing and life treatment. I would like to be part of Fashion For Cancer to show that for some, we can live with cancer. We can have the strength to do beautiful things. This walk (catwalk) is one more step in the journey of my life.

    Personal Motto: A simple change of perspective can transform a life.

  • Desmond, 49

    Surviving stage 4 colorectal cancer and a recurrence to the peritoneum, inevitably gives me some perspective on life. The two elements that resonate in my dreams at night are time and impact. How to maximise both in my personal life, family, and the community at large. It's time to put myself out there as a Cancer Still-Surviving Thriver. I hope it inspires other cancer fighters to live life fabulously and always to the MAX!

    Personal Motto: Step out fabulously into life.

  • Dorothy, 54

    I was devastated when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. With God's grace and mercy, he kept me going and gave me the strength to fight this disease. Faith in God, as well as support from my family and colleagues, helped me a lot. I tried to think positively. I kept telling myself that this was just a process I needed to get through. I believe that God has given me a new lease of life to spread his good news. Now, I maintain myself with a healthy diet and lots of exercise.

    Personal Motto: A new lease of life to spread the good news.

  • Ezra, 17

    Stage 4 germ cell tumor in the lung. I don't have a specific reason to be part of the Fashion For Cancer movement, it’s more of a feeling. Cancer has shown me that people aren't afraid of dying. They are afraid of leaving those they love. I feel that being part of this movement is a way to show that even if we have suffered a lot, we can still do great things.

    Personal Motto: Carpe Diem

  • Julianne, 42

    As a survivor, my journey isn't just about me. It's about giving hope to others who are fighting their own battles. By stepping onto that runway, I will be showing others who may be going through this too, that there is life after cancer. Life can be filled with beauty, laughter, and yes, even fashion!

    Personal Motto: We may lose our beauty from time to time. But when we close our eyes and open our
    hearts - we will see the beauty all around us. Cancer will not be my last…

  • Mable, 33

    Breast cancer. Create awareness that cancer can happen to anyone, not just old people.

    Personal Motto: Stay positive.

  • Melissa, 36

    I don't think anyone can ever prepare for the day you receive a cancer diagnosis. I never imagined I would hear those words. Being diagnosed with cancer at the age of 29 was probably the most life-changing event for me, and my closest family. It was a tough journey. I count my blessings for the love and support I had. I can only imagine how much harder it would be without my loved ones.

    Personal Motto: Don't wait for life to show you the true importance of health.

  • Prem, 63

    I discovered that I had stomach cancer in 2017. I had a total gastrectomy; I want to be a part of the Fashion For Cancer movement to do my bit for charity.

    Personal Motto: Trust in God and keep going.

  • Rainier, 36

  • Selene, 36

    I want to let people know that while breast cancer is a scary word, it can be treatable. I am currently in remission. I also want to remind women to do more self-checks for their breast health as breast cancer is more apparent in younger ladies.

    Personal Motto: Live in the moment and enjoy life.

  • Selvi, 55

    Breast cancer was the most difficult time in my life. I wouldn't ever want to go through it again. But it was this experience that made my life in many ways...Richer! Going through cancer treatment has changed my life and my perspective. I appreciate life much more. I always try to focus on the positives. It has also taught me the importance of letting go and not sweat the small stuff.

    Personal Motto: Do not let fear, embarrassment, or shame prevent you from finding the help you need.

  • Shamen, 46

    A breast cancer survivor. To be a source of hope and light to patients and survivors out there. Also to share that we can thrive after cancer. Life does not end when cancer begins. I have come out as a different person after the biggest fight of my life. I have learned to love a little deeper, laugh a little louder, and just live the best life I can ever live for myself.

    Personal Motto: Do what makes your soul happy.

  • Summer, 31

    I am one of the youngest cervical cancer survivors in Singapore. I have triumphed over this daunting ordeal three times since the age of 24. Through my involvement in the Fashion For Cancer, I am eager to share my journey of self-discovery during this challenging period. I wish to inspire and instill hope in others. My battle with cancer has taught me to embrace self-love and foster a deeper connection with my inner self. Ultimately, I want to lead to a happier and more fulfilling life.

    Personal Motto: Be in Power. Be in charge of your life.

  • Suzette, 40

    Cervical cancer survivor. I am a testament to the unwavering strength of the human spirit and the boundless capacity for resilience. Joining Fashion For Cancer is about showing the world that sickness doesn't define us. It's about living each day to the fullest. Embracing kindness and truthfulness, and supporting one another through thick and thin.

    Personal Motto: Thriving beyond, embrace unity, and live courageously.

  • Wen Liang, 37

    Diffused large b cell lymphoma. I chanced upon the story of Rong and Bee Yan and was moved by their initiative. I want to be a part of this Fashion For Cancer movement to spread the words of encouragement to all who are still fighting out there.

    Personal Motto: People say you only live once (YOLO). I tell them that I have lived twice.

  • Wilfred, 40

    I'm a designer and creative director living in Singapore for now a decade. I was diagnosed with Hairy Cell Leukemia back in 2022. This illness came as a huge surprise to me. Although it was a dark period, I'd like to be a part of the Fashion For Cancer movement to show my strength and determination in life to hopefully uplift others.

    Personal Motto: Instead of being held back, I choose to live forward.
