Upon entering the venue, I fell in love with the pretty TEAL coloured theme for this campaign. It's such a unique colour, and now it represents the Ovarian Cancer Campaign proper. Besides that, I find the decos for the place itself very dainty and princessy, which's good!

"Positively TEAL" Initiative
 156515_10150997983278665_358782974_n
  • Encourage everyone to spread the awareness of Ovarian Cancer to friends and family members
  • Help women be more aware of the signs and symptoms of Ovarian Cancer and to take positive steps
  • To consult a doctor immediately should they experience any symptoms

It was an informative session that if it wasn't for it, I wouldn't have gained knowledge about Ovarian Cancer and the dangers it brings *facepalm*. So here in Singapore, We probably have heard a lot of Breast Cancer but not so much of Ovarian Cancer.


BUT, DID YOU KNOW?
Ovarian Cancer is the 5th most common cancer among women, and it happens to 1 in 80 women!

I certainly don't want to be that unlucky woman :( Sadly, there are currently NO tests that you can do to detect Ovarian Cancer, unless breast cancer where you can go for a mammogram etc. That's the risk!

Because that's when people with Ovarian Cancer go to the doctors when their symptoms get too unbearable. Too late, by then the disease is already at Stage III or IV.
I call it the 'Silent Killer'. So, once you feel a little uncomfortable, quickly seek medical advice/treatment!



As scary and risky as it sounds, #factis, the ONLY way to recognise Epithelial Ovarian Cancer is through its Symptoms! :/ And honestly, these symptoms are non-specific, ohno! Nevertheless, I'm gonna list down the common complaints #justincase:
  • Bloated feeling in the abdomen
  • Abdominal distension
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Backache or ache in the legs
  • Change of bowel habits
  • Urinary complaints
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Loss of Weight
Don't take them lightly! Now that you know about it through reading my post, you are lucky because you know that they COULD potentially be Ovarian Cancer. Just bear them in mind!

Besides feeding us with information about Ovarian Cancer, we were fed with TEAL treats, courtesy of Canele, one of the sponsors of this campaign.

After the food, we had a reallife testimonial sharing by an Ovarian Cancer survivor, Ms Lim Ai Ling.
Kudos to her and Thank God she's now healed (:

Although she wasn't an expressive speaker, however, her story was so real that it really struck me that Cancer can happen to anyone of us at any one point, even as young as myself... :(

Besides this event, there'll be a clubbing event at Zouk, this coming Thursday!
Check out the poster below, for more details...

I'll be walking the runway fashion alongside other bloggers and cancer survivors. My 1st time experiece, hoping it would be good! Let me know if you guys wanna come because I got free entry and drinks for 3 of my readers and myself! It's worth S$30 bucks, just so you know.
Purchased the ZOUK tickets and the proceeds will go to Singapore Cancer Society, for a good cause, in support of the fight against Ovarian Cancer!
