Other Fundraiser

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” Together with me, let's reach out to those in need.

My Story

Dear Friends, Just once in a while – a cause will tug at your heartstrings and you will know that you have to do something about it. As for me, by witnessing my grandfather's heroic battle recently, I saw the courage and strength that cancer patients have. He inspired me to continue with this fight. Without hesitation, I signed up to support Relay for Life 2015 & Locks For Hope 2015.
On top of that, I have decided to Be Brave & Go Bald. 

Emily is participating in Relay for Life 2015 -  Locks For Hope 2015 -  Be Brave, Be Bald.
and is fundraising for National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) 

At NCMS - Giving Hope, Celebrating Life

The National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) is the first cancer related NGO in the country that provides education, care and support services for people affected by cancer.It is a non-profit organisation dependent on the generosity of the community to continue our efforts in assisting individuals who are dealing with the various aspects of a cancer diagnosis. 
Being the only charitable organization that provides holistic cancer support to patients and caregivers, NCSM takes them through their journey in understanding and dealing with cancer in various phases.All donations will help in funding education, cancer patient support and free screening programmes for the underprivileged. Your contribution will be significant in improving cancer awareness in Malaysia in the areas of:
  • Education
    Knowledge raises awareness. We hope to reach out to more people on the importance of prevention, screening and early detection in decreasing cancer incidences in Malaysia.
  • Care
    We want to continuously raise the standards of cancer by providing advanced facilities in screening, diagnosis and cancer treatments, at the same time keeping it accessible for everyone.
  • Support
    Empowering individuals and those affected with cancer to maintain the highest possible quality of life through various channels within NCSM’s capacity.

Events - Let Hope In

  • 05/09 - 06/09/15 - Relay For Life 
  • 19/09/15 - Locks For Hope  +  Be Brave, Be Bald  
In conjunction with Relay For Life, I will walk for 16 hours overnight, starting from dusk and ends at dawn the next day in remembrance of my late grandfather.  #Celebrate, #Remember, #Fight Back.

In conjunction with Locks for Hope, I will be donating 8 inches of my hair to make wigs. Hair being one of the most emotional attachments in determining one's confidence is definitely important to me. In fact, I have never had short hair since I was 4. However, to the less fortunate ones who never had the chance to grow hair, having hair is a dream come true. At the end of the day, I know it will all be worthwhile if I can put a smile on their faces.   

Be Brave, Be Bald
This is definitely the most courageous decision that I have made in 20 years of my life. It saddens me deeply when cancer patients have to fight against the illness, and still need to worry about becoming unattractive, being 'forced' to shave their hair off. 
Therefore, I am supporting those who are battling cancer and letting them know that losing hair is not something they should be ashamed of. Having an illness such as cancer does not define who you are. Being bald is nothing to be ashamed of. Hair, or no hair, you're gorgeous. 
Let the real you shine, you are beautiful just the way you are :) 
Be #brave, be #bold. Go #bald.

Donate. Let's touch lives together

Starting on 5th September at 6pm, I will be lacing up my shoes, joining the rest in the community to walk for 16 hours till 10am on the following day in support of the cancer awareness cause. 
On 16th September, the day I'm turning 21, I will cut my hair and shave my hair bald. (Due to certain circumstances, I have to delay this event to 19th September, which is 3 days from now :) )

My goal is to net RM 10,000 for NCMS with the support of my friends and family. Help me raise funds for this meaningful cause - so that no one fights cancer alone.

Let HOPE in, to create miracles for those in need.
