Healthy diet for cancer patients and survivors

A healthy diet is something I preach every single day to everyone around me ( I apologize if I nag sometimes), but YOU are what YOU eat! Of course, it got me thinking along the lines of sharing it with the other young cancer survivors and patients as we have a whole life ahead of us, and we have to prevent a relapse from happeming. Plus, learning how to cook our own meals means that we know exactly what we are putting in our mouths. That's exactly what happened, NCSM along with Panasonic Malaysia organized a cooking class with a healthy 3 course meal for our young cancer patients and survivors support group. They could bring their caretakers along to learn as...

Challenges faced starting a Youth support group for cancer patients and survivors in Malaysia

Many of you who have been following my social media feed know about my passion to raise cancer awareness and I've been doing it through the National Cancer society of Malaysia. Recently, I've started a youth support group for cancer patients, and survivors from the age of 15 to 35 since the third quarter of 2016. One of the main reasons I wanted to start it was because while I was experiencing cancer, I felt very alone in the journey while wearing a colostomy bag and wanted someone in my age group I could speak to. However, I couldn't find anyone as most of the people wearing a colostomy bag were mostly 60 and above. That was when google became my best...

Donations achieved for the National Cancer society of Malaysia

If you guys recall my project last year in raising cancer awareness and donations for the National Cancer Society of Malaysia's first cancer information system(a hotline you can call to enquire about anything related to cancer), I am so happy to announce that we've reached the target of 50,000 SHARES and LIKES and more! Not only did we achieve 50,000 which means RM50,000 to NCSM but RM52,000 was donated by Axa Affin Life Berhad because there were more shares and likes! I would like to personally thank everyone who SHARED, and LIKED the postings. Not forgetting those cancer patients, survivors, and caretakers who bared their stories to all of us, a heartfel THANK YOU  from lil ol me :) Shooting the last...

First Youth Ambassador for the National cancer society of Malaysia

Ever since I was 16, my dream was to help youths, their socioemotional wellbeing. This dream was spurred on by the fact that I volunteered at an orphanage, and witnessed what abuse and abandonment did to these kids. And, that is one of the main reasons why I took Psychology as my major, even pursuing it up till the PhD level in Hawaii. I know many people would think I am having fun, but I rarely did because I was mostly doing work in the lab or at home...

Cancer drains everyone and everything!

Cancer drains everyone and everything! When I first met Staci after correspondence between the both of us for 2 months, she gave me a smile, and she was so cheerful. Standing in front of me was a 25 year old colorectal cancer PATIENT that showed no sign that she was undergoing chemotherapy, and recently underwent a major surgery to remove parts of her colon(a colectomy surgery). I was so thankful for her sharing her story, and joining the #sharestrength movement by writing about her story in her own blog upon being diagnosed. Not only that, she agreed to be a part of the second series of Ä New Norm, now called the Awakening! She was so cheerful, and sharing about her...

To Stand up to cancer with confidence

When someone is stricken with the Big-C, many people will start having negative thoughts, and emotions leading to a weaker physical state as well. And, that’s exactly what a Big-C patient shouldn’t do, wallow in self-pity, or feel afraid but to face it with confidence. Basically, staring at it in the face, and say ‘Bring it On’, I am going to overcome this and come out the other side stronger, and that’s what I practiced from the start. I believe many cancer patients like myself faced not only the emotional, and mental anguish BUT the financial bit too because cancer treatment and surgery is very expensive!!!! If you read, you guys would know what I went through HERE in terms...
