Introduction:

 

A Journey of Hope is a fundraiser event organized by Guardant Health in support of Singapore Cancer Society (SCS). Its goal is to support cancer patients in Singapore in their journey to health and recovery.


Funds will be raised through an auction of magnificent art pieces painted by award winning artist and cancer survivor, Ms. Chun Wee Ping. Watercolor painting has helped Wee Ping overcome the challenges of her cancer journey. To her, each stroke of brush reflects her triumphant fight against cancer and she sees every artwork as a celebration of life.


A Journey of Hope online auction features an exclusive collection of Wee Ping's 12 paintings with a series of iconic places in Singapore and beautiful sceneries that she has captured during her trips around Asia, Europe and USA. We welcome you to show your support by starting your bid early to own her masterpieces.


A Journey of Hope fundraiser will be held on November 23, 2018 at Sinfonia restaurant.


Invited guests can also do their part by participating in the Art Jam to build a 200-piece mural - "A Celebration of Life" created by Wee Ping.


All proceeds gather from the auction and donations will go to the Singapore Cancer Society. Amounts paid above the minimum bid is eligible for 2.5 times tax-exemption. No buyer's premium charged for this auction.

 

About Wee Ping:


Wee Ping was immensely interested in art and started her training since young, and had won more than 100 awards in art competitions. In 1993, she was awarded the EDB-Takashimaya Scholarship to further her training in art and design in Japan.


She was especially keen on watercolor. Watercolor painting never fails to bring surprises to the artist as one can never fully anticipate how the completed artwork will turn out. Picturesque landscape and architecture are among her favourite subjects.


Being diagnosed with breast cancer twice, she is currently on chemo break and regular check-up by specialist doctor as shekeeps battling with cancer in her system.


Wee Ping’s battle with cancer has gained for her a new appreciation for watercolor painting. To her watercolor painting is like her cancer journey. As each stroke of brush brings her closer towards completing an art piece, it reflects her triumphant fight over cancer every single day.


When she recalls those little flashes of images from years ago; which are more than images, where she can hear the sounds, smell of the chemo room, feels the aches of treatments, and remembers the weakness from it all. She also remembers the strength she conjured up, her will to live that grew, the appreciation for the life she learned and the certainty she truly believed she would complete the journey beautifully.
