ENSURE NO MALAYSIAN FEAR CANCER THROUGH EDUCATION, CARE, SUPPORT
What you’re about to do can make a difference
for people affected by cancer around the world and Malaysian families nationwide
CANCER CHALLENGES IN MALAYSIAN FAMILIES
Due to a lack of treatment centres nationwide, they are forced to travel far from their home to Kuala Lumpur and spend days or weeks to provide care and have their children get treatment, causing “Accommodation problems and further financial stress”.
Many Malaysian families go through hardship when cancer hits, more than you could ever imagine. Not only child patients are in need of support, but also the families “the lifeline of the patients” who push through stressful and difficult times to provide care for their loved ones.
CHILDREN’S HOME OF HOPE
NCSM provides FREE accommodation – Children’s Home of Hope – for child patients from outside Kuala Lumpur while they undergo treatment. Here’s the real story of Clare, a mother of 9-month-old Micah with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma.
“I cried when I first found out, but I immediately accepted it,” says Clare. “I told myself that this might be one of the challenges in my life and it will help me discover how strong I am.” Micah first received his treatment in Sabah, but the family still had to travel to Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) for further screening, as these services weren’t available in Sabah. A search for places to stay led them to Children’s Home of Hope. Clare said “At the Home, it feels like heaven for me and my child.”
Today, Micah is currently undergoing chemotherapy and Clare’s hope is that her son will one day be cancer-free.
Like Clare, Rokayah is a mother of Nuraliya (11) fighting against brain cancer that causes loss of sights said “Having a child with cancer put the family through some hard times, and I’m glad that we have a home to stay, but also some financial help from the Society”.
Today, over 1,500 children patients have already stayed in the Home – together with their caregivers.
