Best Tourism Event MAYOR AWARD

The National Cancer Society of Malaysia


While cancer is hitting more and more young people, their voices remain unheard, and needs unmet.

 

Apart from battling the disease, they risk being isolated from classmates and friends; financial catastrophe (and the failure to secure a job after treatment); the inability to relate to older survivors; and being pushed to ‘move on’, when cancer is a traumatic experience.

 

To support this group and future young cancer patients, the National Cancer Society of Malaysia has set up a Young Cancer Survivors Group in 2016.

 

Each month, patients and survivors aged 15 to 35, as well as their caregivers, meet for sharing sessions, group counselling, and workshops. These activities provide the young survivors a space to share their journey, the opportunity to bond and obtain peer support, and a supportive environment.
