The National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) celebrates 50 years of providing cancer services to cancer patients, caregivers and the public this year.
In conjunction with our 50th anniversary, NCSM held a Gala Charity Dinner on 10 March at Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur. Our Royal Patron, His Royal Highness Sultan Perak Darul Ridzuan Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah and Her Royal Highness Raja Permaisuri Perak Darul Ridzuan Tuanku Zara Salim were the guests of honour.
Thank you to Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz (Principal Patron of NCSM), Dato Zuraidah Atan (Honorary Advisor of NCSM), Datuk Noor Hisham Abdullah (Director General of Health, MOH) and members of the NCSM Board for their kind presence.
NCSM would like to sincerely thank all of its friends and partners who have supported the organisation in the last 50 years. As a non-profit organisation, NCSM relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations to undertake all of its programmes in realising its vision of Living in a World without Cancer.
Message From The President
In 50 years, NCSM has achieved huge expansion starting with cancer screening services to now include general health screening and a range of support services including education and awareness programmes and most recently a Quit Smoking Clinic.
As Malaysia continues its growth and development in technology, NCSM has grown to meet the needs and expectations of the more internet savvy generations. As such, NCSM will be launching its Cancer Information Service Helpline (CIS) and Mobile Cancer Application in the first half of 2016. These two new services will enable more people to easily access cancer support and information which will aid better cancer management.
Future milestones for NCSM will include hosting the World Cancer Congress 2018 (WCC), a first not only for the organisation but also for Malaysia and the South East Asia region. NCSM also plans to expand its support and services to more states within Malaysia with a mobile screening service.
