I'm An Actress, Comedienne, Teacher, and Show Host Who Has Done My Advance Care Planning. AMA!

I'm An Actress, Comedienne, Teacher, and Show Host Who Has Done My Advance Care Planning. AMA!

Meet Ms Abigail Chay, a freelance actress, entertainer, and teacher from Singapore.

Recently, Abigail came by a health screening conducted at a Residents' Committee (RC) centre in her neighbourhood with an Advance Care Planning (ACP) Booth. As she had been hospitalised before, Abigail knew there was a need for her to write up her ACP. 

Abigail has completed her Advance Care Planning since, and also managed to convince her 92-year-old father to do his ACP as well. Today, she is an ambassador for Let's Talk Care, a Singapore-based campaign to raise awareness about Advance Care Planning.

Join her live AMA on Thursday, 4 April 2019, at 1:00 p.m. SGT as she answers all your questions about Advance Care Planning.
