Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for 29,530 deaths in Malaysia in 2020. The most common types of cancers are breast cancer, lung cancer followed by colon and rectum cancer. Apart from that, It is estimated that 1 in every 4 Malaysians will develop cancer by 75 years old. However, 30-50% of these cases are preventable by avoiding risk factors such as physical inactivity, unhealthy diet, tobacco and alcohol use. Therefore, in accordance with SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being, we strive to raise awareness on cancer, advocate the importance of early detection and proper treatment, and debunk myths surrounding cancer. This is done by holding workshops and campaigns, collaborating with relevant local institutions and running donation drives to raise funds for them.
