The impact of the global COVID-19 outbreak had placed a significant strain on our ability to conduct our Colorectal Cancer Awaressness, Screening & Teatment Project and the economy is posing challenges for everyone.
We are unable to carry out the above yearly event due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in the Movement Control Order (MCO) and social distancing by our Malaysian Goverment and we are also experiencing serious setbacks in donations.
We are calling upon all our fellow Malaysian friends and families, to HELP EMPOWERED through your donations so that the organization will be able to continue helping the underprivileged communities through the process of early detection of colorectal cancer during this pandemic crisis.
We know that everyone is affected in same way by this current crisis. Nevertheless, we appeal to all to spare some thought for others who are even more unfortunate. Whatever small donations, collectively, will go a long way towards alleviating the sufferings of cancer-afflicted patients. PLEASE DO YOUR PART. It will be very much appreciated by all in EMPOWERED and even more by the cancer patients.

EMPOWERED - The Cancer Advocacy Society of Malaysia (Persatuan Advokasi Kanser Malaysia)'s mission is to save lives, prevent cancer and serve the poor who are afflicted with cancer in Malaysia. EMPOWERED was formed primarily to help and assure the poor that cancer is not a death sentence. EMPOWERED recognizes that health is usually a low priority in the lives of low income community residents due to their pressing survival needs. And due to the myths and unnecessary fears many of them may have about cancer and its treatments, the residents may make wrong decisions about their health. EMPOWERED aims to equip the residents with the education and support they need to make important changes in their lifestyles by bringing personalized cancer programs right to their doorsteps. In a nutshell, EMPOWERED brings cancer education, early detection screening programs and personalized support into the homes and communities of low income Malaysians.
