Support for a good cause – Power Over Cervical Cancer‏

Good Afternoon people! How’s your Sunday so far? I woke up to a nasty migraine but I ain’t gonna let it spoil my day!! 🙂

Just happened to come across this campaign in FB (Rachel’s FB page to be exact!) and i find it really beneficial so I’m sharing with you ladies!

The Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology of Singapore aims to reduce cervical cancer rates in Singapore and to raise awareness among ladies, a campaign is held in place known as Power Over Cervical Cancer.. Through this campaign, the society worked with various support groups to plan activities to educate and raise awareness of cervical cancer and prevention methods (Which can be detected early with regular pap smear test and prevented with vaccination).

Cervical cancer is the 2nd most common cancer affecting women worldwide, and in Singapore, 1 woman is diagnosed with cervical cancer every 2 days. The good news is that this is the only woman’s cancer which is preventable. Therefore, the society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology of Singapore hopes that through this non-profit cervical cancer awareness campaign – Power Over Cervical Cancer (POCC), mass females will be educated more about the danger of cervical cancer and learn how they can protect themselves.

This year’s campaign theme is known as“You have the Power!”. As a woman in today’s society, you have the power and capabilities to enjoy the best in life, to live the way you want and most importantly, to protect yourself!

The campaign will kick-start with ‘Power to Conquer’ – For this campaign, there will be an online Reverse Auction activity whereby an item will be up for bid (from as low as 80% of the retail price) every 2 days.

What’s so special about this reverse auction will be that the one with the LOWEST UNIQUE BID wins. FYI, these exclusive items are proudly sponsored by supporting retail partners and celebrity ambassadors.
