The Pink Ribbon Wellness (L) Foundation announced that the Life Beyond Breast Cancer Symposium will take place in Kuala Lumpur between March 19 and 21 next year.
The symposium supported by Clinical Research Malaysia (CRM), Rotary Club of Bangsar and Connexion@Nexus will feature presentations by 80 doctors on various topics.
Among the topics are young women living with breast cancer, pregnancy after cancer, nutrition in surviving cancer, preventing breast cancer recurrence, and genetic risks of the disease.
A series of workshops and sharing sessions by cancer survivors are also part of the three-day, two-night symposium at Connexion@Nexus, Bangsar South City Kuala Lumpur.
The symposium will be conducted in three languages.
Those who register before Nov 30 can enjoy the early bird rate of RM600 while those who register between Dec 1 and Jan 31 next year will be charged RM750.
Pink Ribbon Wellness (L) Foundation founder and chairman Datuk Dr M. Devanand said the foundation was providing 40% subsidy for the early birds who wished to join the symposium.
“Our goal is to spread the awareness and exchange knowledge and ideas about breast cancer so that they can become more informed of the disease,” Devanand said.
The foundation also introduced the MyPinkHealth mobile application for Apple and Android (via browser) at the launch to provide the latest news and information about breast cancer.
The foundation also introduced a beneficiary card called the “Medal of Pink”, dedicated to all breast cancer survivors in which card holders are entitled for discounted rates at selected retailers and partnering facilities such as LifeCare Diagnostics Medical Centre, Pharmacie, Natucos MediSpa, Celebrity Beaute, Worthy Media Sdn Bhd, GTF Retail Sdn Bhd, SkinSense Sdn Bhd and Peekaboo Sdn Bhd.
There will be a one-time administrative fee of RM10 and renewal is not necessary.
