Once upon a time, a boy with cancer almost ran out of time, but his doctors cured him and gave him a new lease of life.

VIVA Foundation was established in 2006 in Singapore to celebrate this gift of life and to ensure more children like him will have the same opportunities to live.

Among the many illnesses and problems in the world, childhood cancer may not get the most of funds, focus and facilities. VIVA Foundation fights to put this on the agenda of institutions, by catalysing research, building state-of the-art facilities, supporting doctors and training nurses.

VIVA Foundation believes by doing so, it will change the way childhood cancers are being diagnosed and treated throughout the region, starting with Singapore. Ultimately, this will ensure more children with cancer, regardless of geography, will have a higher chance of full recovery to live out the full potential of their lives.

There is a part which you can play in this VIVA story. We can’t change history, but with your help, we can change the future of children with cancer. And when we do that, we will be able to change his-story and her-story, because fairy-tale-like “happily-ever-afters” can be a reality.
