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.

Reflecting on 2016: Impacts

A transformative year for us also means being able to create impacts through our patient initiatives. This year we’re doing things a little bit differently!

Let’s Sama-Sama Sharing & Learning!

We are grateful for all the support we received throughout these great 10 years. With the support, we manage to reach out to thousands of cancer patients and their families in 100 patient gatherings.
This year we experimented with more intimate and casual gatherings called “Let’s Sama-Sama”. We go back to the root; establishing the deeper connection. Let’s Sama-Sama aims to be a platform for patients to build stronger relationships and to encourage more sharing and learning experiences apart from disease education.




Patient - Healthcare Team Relationship

Continuous support from the healthcare team is what makes the patient gatherings possible. Effective doctor-patient communication is crucial in building trust and good relationship, no doubt. It is heart warming to see the health care team and patients take their relationship to more personal level!
