More often than not, improving access improves survival.
Having access to high quality care is a key part in improving survival rates for cancer patients; unfortunately, the majority of people around the world lack this access, and even with a good national healthcare system in place, many individuals are still unable to seek care in a timely manner, usually due to lack of accurate information about treatments.
Confronting these challenges, we work on making cancer care more accessible by bringing people to existing cures, instead of potentially losing lives due to inaction, and seek to encourage the Malaysian public to have less stigmatising views on cancer.
Genetic testing and counselling is a mostly unknown and untapped field in Malaysia – we aim to change that.
Bringing healthcare professionals and patients together to ensure that patients have access to the treatment they need.
“There is life after the Big C, and it’s a beautiful one, too. And, like my life’s mantra, we all just have to start believing; I fought the good fight and this is where I stand today.” - Frank Chong, cancer survivor
Research accelerates the advancement of treatment and provides patients with better survival odds and improved quality of life.
The majority of cancer research is conducted in the West, which has led to better treatments for Caucasian patients. Cancer Research Malaysia ensures that research is also conducted for Asians. So get on board — you can make a difference.
