Hot Pink Charity Premiere of Love Cuts - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Hot


In Hot Pink were these beautiful and courageous cancer survivors

EastCoastLife joined forces with some of Singapore’s prominent women at the Charity Premiere of Love Cuts as we come together to raise public awareness of breast cancer. 



Mrs Lim Hwee Hua, Minister, Prime Minister's Office and Second Minister for Finance and Second Minister for Transport was the Guest of Honour.

I made sure I stood out by wearing the Breast Cancer Foundation’s symbolic colour – pink. I’m not afraid to wear bold colours and that’s exactly what I went for when I opted for a fuchsia pink blouse.

Love Cuts, starring leading actress MediaCorp artiste Zoe Tay and popular Hong Kong actor Kenny Ho, explores the emotional journey of two women suffering from breast cancer – and its impact on their loved ones. It is a story of courage, hope and family bonds in the face of adversity.

After the movie, friendly Zoe stayed back for a photo with the cancer survivors  

Supported by the HPB, the film aims to raise public awareness of breast cancer in Singapore and to motivate women to take control of their health. Breast cancer remains the most common cancer affecting women in Singapore with approximately 1,100 women diagnosed every year. Early detection and regular breast cancer screening mammography have been key in saving lives.

  5. It sends shivers down the spine when someone you love has cancer, not only breast cancer. It changes the whole environment of the family. We must all be well informed to survive this.
