Cancer is a disease that occurs due to the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. It stems from the failure of the immune system to function properly. Untreated cancer can lead to serious illness and death.
Cancer accounts for a quarter of all deaths in developed countries. For the 10-year period, the top ten types of cancer were detected among Malaysians, namely breast, colorectal, lung, lymphoma, nasopharynx, leukemia, prostate gland, liver, cervix and ovarian cancers.
Through the report issued by the National Cancer Institute, Malaysia National Cancer Registry Report 2012 – 2016 (MNCRR) has shown us the trend of cancer incidence in Malaysia in the period of 10 years from 2007 to 2016.
What surprising is that, it is estimated that one in 10 men, while one in nine women in the country is likely to have cancer!
In the past, cancer was like a death sentence for its sufferers. But, with the current technological advancement in the field of medicine many cancer patients have successfully recovered.
However, the concern among cancer patients is when the cost of medicine and treatment for the disease increases every year to reach hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The more chronic the disease, the higher the cost of treatment. As a result, most of them take the easy route of stopping or abandoning treatment before completion, thus jeopardizing their chances of recovering as usual.
People who have cancer often live at home and get help from loved ones such as their spouse, family members, friends, or neighbors. But how can you help these people so they can be a cancer survivor?
Besides encourage cancer patients and survivors to stay as active as possible, you can also contribute to their medical needs such as treatment cost and medicine.
As mentioned above, the more chronic the disease, the higher the cost of treatment. With your contribution and support, we can give cancer patients hope.
