Jeans For Genes, the international campaign to raise awareness about hereditary conditions, has recently made its debut in Singapore.
Globally, Jeans For Genes was first established in 1992 by the Chronic Granulomatous Disorder (CGD) Society in UK to fundraise for diverse group of hereditary diseases. Today, it is a national appeal in countries around the world to fund revolutionary research that helps diagnose, understand, and find cures or treatments for various genetic conditions.
In Singapore, the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) has launched it on World DNA Day, 25 April 2019, in a bid to increase awareness for hereditary causes of diseases such as cancer as well as other hereditary conditions.
Funds raised will be used to drive research, expand knowledge and advance care for those with increased genetic risk of developing cancer.
NCCS hopes this campaign will lead to increased awareness for cancer as well as non-cancer inherited conditions where much further research is needed.
Singaporeans are encouraged to unite and support Jeans For Genes by wearing their favorite jeans or wearing blue, making a donation and purchasing Jeans For Genes merchandise to join in the fight against cancer.
