Today I'm addressing a very important issue that involves women. So I'm chucking my jokes aside to share with u this important message.
Went for an event last week to learn more about ovarian cancer.
Tt is the 5th most common cancer in Singapore. It can happen to anyone & sad to say a fraction of women die from it each year.
The frightening fact is, ovarian cancer is usually detected at its v last stage which might b too late to sought for help.
A high probability of 1 in 80 woman faces ovarian cancer in their lifetime,
it could happen to
Professor Mahesh, a senior consultant of Obstetrics & Gynaecology was here to share with us a few pointers:
Do look out for chronic symptoms that might sound like a common sickness bloating, back pain, urinary urgency, constipation, tiredness
For more specific and complicated symptoms are pelvic pain, abnormal vaginal bleeding or involuntary weight loss
If such signs happen to you constantly, please consult a specialist, early detection and saving your own life is vital.
As well as the friends around you.
This Lovely Corsage is given to me during the event in support for the cause.
A Cancer Survivor stepped up and shared her story with us, she was in her late twenties when she was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer.
Her life came crashing down as she recalled that this is suppose to be a 'old people sickness' but it actually struck at her prime.
She is now well taken care of by the doctors and leading back a normal life.
Please do not this sickness lightly as it maybe happen to you at any stage of your life including the people around you.
People are trying to spread this message across the community; bloggers like us, Doctors, cancer survivors
and also chefs.
Pastry Chef Christophe Grilo from Canele Patisserie is feeling awkward with the amount of cameras pointing at him.
Teal is the official colour for this campaign, so that explains the cotton candy, Macaroons, corsages.

I had the focus diverted away from the food.
She got her uber hot Teal Heels on.
