THE National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) hopes to receive support from the public and corporate sector for two fundraising programmes.

The money raised will support its efforts in providing cancer-related education, care and support services for the underprivileged.

NCSM’s inaugural SM-TAQA Invitational charity golf tournament as well as a shaving/hair donation programme, dubbed the “Bald & Brave 2022” will both be held at will be held on Dec 16 at Kota Permai Golf & Country Club, Kota Kemuning, Selangor.

NCSM managing director Dr Murallitharan Munisamy said they were seeking to collaborate with corporate partners for the year-end fundraising programmes.

He said corporate organisations that wanted to focus on environment, social and governance (ESG) as well as sustainable development goals (SDGs) could play a significant role.

“As difficult times emerge, many people from the B40 group are finding it challenging to pay for cancer treatment, which can be costly.

“The contributions will help provide psychosocial services such as therapy and assessment for cancer patients as well as free accommodation for those with cancer who are being treated at Hospital Kuala Lumpur,” he said.

The “Bald & Brave 2022” will be held from 10am to 1pm while the golf tournament will take place from noon to 6pm.

RHB Insurance Bhd chairman Jahanath Muthusamy said they wanted to support NCSM as they are aware that treatments and services for cancer patiets can be costly.

Chubb Insurance Malaysia Bhd head of broking and volunteer for “Bald & Brave 2022” Wayne Leow said he will have his head shaved at the event to encourage cancer patients.
