On 12 February 2020, an event called “Campuses Against Cancer” was held at Faculty of Creative Multimedia’s (FCM) E-Theatre and Atrium in conjunction with Cancer Awareness Month. Twenty volunteers which led by Ms. Raja Razana, a lecturer from the Faculty of Applied Communication (FAC) contributed to a good cause.
The main objective of the event was to create pre-cancer awareness, and it also served as a good platform for the students to improve their writing ability as they had to write to promote the organisation and encourage students to volunteer for NGO organisations such as National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM).
The highlight of the event was the talk conducted by Madam Nadia Inez Junazli, the Assistant Manager of Health Education Literacy, Policy, and Promotion together with a breast cancer survivor, Ms. Naviindran Pillai, who also represented the NCSM. Madam Nadia enlightened the audience on the myths and facts of cancer followed by Miss Naviindran Pillai who talked about her very inspiring cancer journey.
Besides that, a few activities were conducted by Foundation in English students including Cancer Information booth, food sales, band performance, and educational games. The students managed to raise RM856.50 from the sales and all proceeds will go to NCSM.
