International Childhood Cancer Day 2017

Children and adolescents are the heart of every community and nation. It is our responsibility to ensure that they are able to live life to the fullest and to reach their full potentials despite a cancer diagnosis.
Today, we encourage you to SPEAK OUT for kids with cancer, the survivors, and their families. SHARE THE POST NOW, because we believe that no child or family should go through the cancer journey alone.

#WeCanICan on 4 Feb 2017 World Cancer Day

                        How #WeCanICan play our roles?

People living with cancer and their families, friends, and caregivers can be powerful advocates for others dealing with the disease. By sharing their own story, cancer survivors can help others by reducing the fear and stigma around the disease that often deter others from seeking care and support.

Individuals can also be part of the wider conversation on cancer policy through engaging in public campaigns, communicating with decision-makers, and joining with consumer support groups to ensure the patient’s voice is heard.

Access to effective and quality cancer care is for every cancer patient, across all economic/financial circumstances. Of equal importance is to address the affordability of care to protect individuals and families from financial hardship as a consequence of out-of-pocket expenses.

We can advocate for improved access to cancer treatment and services across the care continuum.

Joining forces to create innovative and multisectoral partnerships is a key step in strengthening cancer advocacy efforts.

By uniting around common goals and aspirations, the global cancer community can leverage the complementary skills, knowledge, and spheres of influence of each partner to increase the quality of the cancer treatment and care.

Cancer Touches Everyone.Our Future Together.

We Change Lives

1. Informational & Emotional Support: Patient Gathering

The patient gatherings increase patient understanding about their disease and treatment goals. They can then understand the real reasons to be compliant with their treatment, in turn leading to optimum treatment outcomes.
Living testimonials are the primary source of emotional support, as they are more identifiable to the patients. Sharing and listening to each other’s experiences help patients realize that they are not alone.

2. Financial Support: Projek Sambung Sekolah

We believe the children shouldn't be denied school education due to any circumstances, including when their parents are being affected by blood cancer. We want to do our bits to fight for their equal opportunities.

We assist the children of blood-cancer patients who need financial aid to continue schooling. This effort is made possible by financial support from voluntary donors.

3. Address Misconceptions about Cancer: Public Awareness Campaign

Although medical treatment has advanced, cancer survivors and their families are still facing great stresses: education opportunities, job seeking, marriage, social life, and fear of recurrence.
Fear of cancer is ingrained in everyone in society. People are fearful because they are unfamiliar with the diseases leading to ignorance, stereotyping and discrimination.
Together we need to change the public mindset to address guilt, shame, and fear felt by the cancer survivors and the people around them.
