THE REVIVAL CONNECTION (TRC)

For Patients with Advanced & Recurrent Cancers & Their Loved Ones

 

The Revival Connection (TRC) aims to provide knowledge, psychological and emotional support to patients with advanced and recurrent cancer and their caregivers through organised activities, talks, mutal support and sharing of experiences.

 

Inspired by a handful of patients who had attended our EnReach Retreat and STEER programmes and wanted 'something more', TRC was birthed on 30 April 2005. This vibrant support group for persons surviving recurrence cancers is the first of its kind in the world and currently has a membership size of more than 80.

 

Led by the Principal Medical Social Worker, Ms Jacinta Phoon, the members unite on their motto 'Where there's life, there's hope' and strive to live life to the fullest despite of the future uncertainties. The members keep in regular close contact with one another. A number of them also take on roles as mentors, providing practical support and cheer to those undergoing treatment.

 

The Support Group typically meets every third Saturday afternoon of alternate month (unless otherwise indicated).
