Just before the Insurans Hayat Cares’ team wrapped up its community service programmes for 2015, it sponsored an event called Celebration of Life with Cancer Survivors, a collaborative effort with the Oncology Ward, Paediatric Unit of Hospital Kuala Lumpur which was held on 21 November 2015 at the National Cancer Institute in Putrajaya.

The Insurans Hayat Cares’ team sponsored packed breakfast, blankets, towels and pillows to the cancer survivors. It was officiated by Yang Berhormat Dato' Seri Dr Hilmi Bin Haji Yahaya, Deputy Health Minister and attended by about 100 cancer survivors with their parents as well as doctors and nurses who had treated them before.

Speaking at the event, YB Dato’ Seri Dr Hilmi proposed that a specialised support group for children with cancer be set up, comprising former cancer patients, medical specialists and related agencies, as well as volunteers, to assist and give moral support to cancer patients to lead a normal life.

The event witnessed the strong bonds among the cancer survivors and their parents regardless of race, national origin or social status.
