AXA Affin 110 CancerCare: A little help goes a long way

I believe some of you had heard about this project, I myself came across this through a few bloggers who blogged about it in Mandarin, such as Eve 依芙, 宅妈 and 珍妮花. (借你们的部落一下蛤。。xD)
So if you prefer reading in Mandarin, please hop over to their blogs. Otherwise, spare me a few minutes to read the following.

AXA AFFIN, in collaboration with National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM), are supporting cancer patients currently undergoing treatment in this campaign. AXA AFFIN will fund the NCSM daycare usage to one cancer patients for every blogger that links back to AXA AFFIN 110CancerCare website in their effort to care for cancer patients.
All they need is for you to write a post on your blog about cancer and mention AXA AFFIN or this project briefly. There’s no strict requirement for the post, as long as it is about cancer.

There have been official press releases as well for this project for additional information. Links to the press release are as below:

I am sure we all heard about cancer as it's one of the top killer these days, it takes a way millions of lives each year, and it does not just occur on adults, even young children can be affected too. But what really is cancer? In short, cancer is a class of diseases characterized by out-of-control cell growth. There are over 100 different types of cancer, and each is classified by the type of cell that is initially affected.

Here, a short video on what is cancer:



I remember vividly how cancer took my uncle's life away many years ago. He was a hawker and my mum helped at his stall for years, I went to help too during school holidays. Hence we meet quite often and we actually chat quite a lot. He is such a nice uncle to me. But the news that he had an intestine cancer shocked us all. It was quite cancerous and no further treatment can be done, he can only rely on medicines to sort of makes him live a bit longer.
But day by day he lost appetite and became thinner and thinner, til the extend that he couldn't even sit up but had to lay down on bed all day. In the end, he lost the fight and left us all :(

Cancer can be caused by genetic and other factors, but as long as take good care, we can get it diagnosis earlier before it's too late. That's why it's important to lead a healthy lifestyle, exercise regularly, watch our diet, stay away from alcohol and tobacco, and do annual check-up. 


Lastly, let's show our love and pray for the cancer patients, and give them a hope.

  2. Cancer is so scary to everyone these days as this deadly disease is on the rise. I will support your good cause later and link back to AXA AFFIN 110CancerCare website. I have helped the Hospice for years and my duty was to fetch the terminally ill patients for treatments until they passed away. Now I have to summarize their stories.
