The National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) is a not-for-profit organization established in 1966 providing education, care and support services for people affected by cancer. It is the first cancer-related not-for-profit organization in Malaysia that provides an extensive range of cancer services and support to the public.
NCSM’s mission is “To ensure that no Malaysian fears cancer by creating an understanding of cancer that leads to prevention and early detection, and by providing the best possible care and support for those affected by cancer”.
All of the work that will be displayed in the exhibition was produced as part of a weekly art therapy class run by The Chinese Ink Painting group under NCSM. The class is taught by Datin Alice Chai, who is also a cancer survivor herself. She used this class to help and motivate cancer survivors and their caregivers after going through their cancer journey.
