Cancer Awareness

How many of us have lost our luved ones due to cancer ?? According to estimates, there are about 90-100,000 people in Malaysia living with cancer at any one time.The National Cancer Registry of Malaysia (NCR) records 21,773 Malaysians being diagnosed with cancer but estimates that almost 10,000 cases are unregistered every year.It is estimated that one in four Malaysians (1:4) will develop cancer by 75 years old.Increasing population and longer life spans contribute to rise of cancer. Less than 10% of cancers happen in children compared to over 50% in men and 35% in women aged 50 and above.Cancer occurs more in females than males with a ratio of male to female .The cancer incidence out of 100,000 people are:

    • 4,058 Malay males and 4,753 Malay females are diagnosed with cancer
    • 4,078 Chinese males and 4,422 Chinese females are diagnosed with cancer
    • 629 Indian males and 1065 Indian females are diagnosed with cancer

I was approached through email by Danial from Lion & Lion, a digital agency who is currently working together with AXA AFFIN for a cancer outreach campaign. AXA AFFIN is working in collaboration with National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) to support cancer patients currently undergoing chemotherapy. It seems that they’ll be funding chemotherapy daycare usage for one cancer patient for every blogger that links back to their 110CancerCare website in their efforts to care for cancer patients. Basically, a post from one blogger 
will get a cancer patient one-day funding for their daycare usage at NCSM Treatment Centre. Therefore, I hope that this one post would be of help !
