The National Cancer Society of Malaysia


Resource & Wellness Centre (RWC) was set up in 2003 to empower cancer patients, survivors and caregivers to fight cancer with ways that will enhance their quality of life through education, care and support programmes. RWC is also a one-stop information and support centre for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers.

 

In 2011, a help desk led by survivors started at RWC to help cancer patients, survivors and caregivers give peer support. In 2016, Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) invited NCSM to set up the same help desk service at the HKL Breast Clinic. We then also extended our support to Tung Shin Hospital. All the Help Desks are run by our volunteer survivors.

 

With this outreach Help Desk programme, we have come to better understand problems experienced by cancer patients and survivors particularly in matters of financial aid and peer support.

 

The centre has been providing:

 

  • Free counselling by trained counsellors
  • Peer support groups to help patients cope with their cancer journey
  • In-house dietician to give free advice on healthy eating pre, during and post treatment
  • Free talks and public forums by local and foreign experts on cancer prevention, management, nutrition, overall wellness, exercise and the latest treatments
  • Empower cancer survivors to manage their life better, through regular activities such as cooking, craft work, dancing and painting.
  • Complimentary therapies that help in stress and pain management. https://cancer.org.my/get-help/
