After more than three decades of serving the community, Sally Lo, founder and CEO of the Hong Kong Cancer Fund, has created a robust support system for those facing cancer in Hong Kong. During Covid, Lo swiftly switched her team’s services online to continue offering support to clients. Through the Hardships Fund, she spearheaded the distribution of food coupons and financial support for necessities, while also offering Zoom classes and wellness programmes that had more than 20,000 attendances. Lo also opened the Women Support Centre to help breast cancer patients and their families, providing care and counselling. Prior to starting the Hong Kong Cancer Fund, Lo assisted in setting up TVB and the first Miss Hong Kong pageant.

Compassion. “Love is the worker of miracles,” and “Never feel sorry for yourself for more than five minutes,” are the two quotes that inspire her to give back and support members of the community who need help. “I’ve been touched by the courage, determination and positive attitude of many cancer survivors we’ve served,” says Lo. “I’m looking forward to the day when my job becomes redundant and cancer is brought under control and treatment is affordable.”
