Ms Linda Tong

Committee Member

Ms Linda Tong started her career as a corporate banker at Overseas Union Bank (Australia) and ABN AMRO (Hong Kong). Upon her return to Singapore, Linda began volunteering with the Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) in 2004 before being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007.

Her involvement with BCF spans nearly 20 years during which she introduced many programmes to BCF. In 2010, she introduced Zumba as part of the Healing Through The Arts (HTTA) programme, and subsequently introduced the sport to the Children’s Cancer Foundation.

Linda is passionate in creating awareness that cancer survivors can enjoy rigorous exercise like everyone else. Together with like-minded volunteers, she helped to raise fund for BCF by organizing Zumba events in many places like MBS, Republic Polytechnic, Suntec City & Resort World Sentosa.

For the past 12 years, Linda also encouraged BCF to participate in ICAP Singapore Pte Ltd’s (a securities and brokerage firm) charity day. To date, ICAP has remained a strong supporter of BCF.

She is particularly supportive during the Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM). She plays a key role in helping to organize and coordinate voluntary groups to distribute and collect Pink Ribbon Donation pins and boxes all over Singapore.

For years, she is also depended upon in sourcing for gifts and sponsors for BCF events and helped to gather manpower to pack and distribute items for these events.

Closer to her heart, Linda volunteers regularly as a BCF Befriender and helps in Telephone Counselling of breast cancer survivors.

Apart from helping at BCF, Linda also volunteers at the Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) in its “Look Good Feel Better” program where cancer survivors are coached in make-up and personal grooming techniques. These sessions not only help the survivors gain personal grooming skills but more importantly, help them to gain confidence physically, mentally and emotionally.
