It's #Pinktober yet again, and we've put together a special pink collection - Celebrate Life! for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Celebrate Life in Pink this October!

As far as we know, 1 in 13 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime. It can happen to anyone, and affect everyone. 

This October, we sat down with three breast cancer survivors (Charlene, Siew Lian and Linda) and a family caregiver (Sie Cheong) to hear from them about how breast cancer has impacted their lives.


Life can be so unpredictable. There are some things that might be risk factors for breast cancer, such as age, genetic mutations, family history, eating certain foods or smoking. Or, it could be none of those at all.

“People may say, oh you have breast cancer genes, you surely will have it. However, there was zero cancer history in my family.

| Charlene Koh - a  HER2 Breast Cancer Survivor


More than often, we hear the courageous stories from the breast cancer survivors. Have you ever wondered, how does breast cancer affect the people around?

We had the chance to hear from Sie Cheong, a strong advocate for early detection. He was a family caregiver to his late wife, Eunice, who was diagnosed with final stage breast cancer.

“My whole world collapsed. When my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, it affected me alot... until today. We worked very hard, accumulated well, but we forgot to accumulate our health.

| Low Sie Cheong -  an active supporter of Breast Cancer Foundation and Paddlers in the Pink


Life after recovery isn't the easiest. But, here's a little advice from our pink warriors,

Spend quality time with your loved ones. Appreciate the little things in life. Most importantly, enjoy the things you love doing and be healthy.

And of course, you celebrate life!

View the entire Celebrate Life! collection here. In October, we wear PINK, and 20% of proceeds from this collection will go to Singapore Breast Cancer Foundation.
