CANCER IS THE NUMBER ONE KILLER DISEASE IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. By 2020 it is expected that there would be 15 million new cancer cases worldwide. This means that by 2020; every family will have at least one member suffering from cancer - your parent, your spouse, your sibling or even your child.
You see, cancer can hit anyone at any age. We don't know who it will strike at and when. But we do know for sure that if we do not take action now to educate ourselves on cancer and to do all we can to eradicate this disease; it may be too late.
With our tagline Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back! RFL KL offers every one of us the opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer.
- We Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer and find solace and inspiration in the strength of the survivors as we continue the fight.
- We Remember loved ones who have fallen in their fight, at the Relay we walk side by side with people battling cancer to commiserate and find healing.
- We Fight Back! By participating in the Relay we aim to raise the bar on the awareness of cancer and put an end to the disease.
Since 1966, National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) has been an active force in advancing the cancer cause in Malaysia. NCSM is the only NGO to offer a holistic range of cancer services in Malaysia at subsidized rates, or in certain cases; at no cost. Our mission is to Educate, Care and Support cancer patients in Malaysia. Through RFL, NCSM will continue to provide such services to the public as such:
We provide programmes to reduce cancer risks, detect cancer early, ensure proper treatment and empower people facing cancer to maintain the highest quality of life. We also facilitate post cancer treatment and support mechanisms. Through our services and campaigns such as Relay for Life we have seen many lives changed for the better.
