LIAM, through its Insurans Hayat Cares community service platform and in collaboration with CARIF and the Malaysian Insurance Institute recently organised a Cancer Talk for the insurance and takaful industry as well as the general public. Two distinguished speakers in the field of cancer, Professor Dr. Teo Soo Hwang, Chief Executive of CARIF and Dr. Eni Juraida Abdul Rahman, Consultant Paediatrician of the Oncology Ward, Hospital Kuala Lumpur gave insightful presentations and shared their knowledge and valuable information about cancer to approximately 60 participants at the MII City Centre, Wisma Sime Darby Kuala Lumpur. The Chairman of Industry Promotion Committee, Mr Ramzi Toubassy in his welcome remarks praised the support of the industry towards such an activity and hope that more of such talks would be organised in the future to increase awareness among the people. “It is important that we all get educated all the time about our health. Knowing what to do and how to live a healthy life must be everyone’s top priority,” he said. Through the topic, ‘Cancer is Not Just Bad Luck, Despite What the Headlines Say’, Professor Dr. Teo shared the world’s overview of cancer, history of cancer genetics as well as cancer statistics in Malaysia. She also highlighted a number of cases including famous Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie’s story, who went into surgery after doctors detected possible signs of early cancer in her. Meanwhile, Dr. Eni Juraida who talked on ‘Growing Up in the Shadows of Cancer’ shared her story on dealing with parents of children with cancer. Having more than 20 years’ experience, she witnessed many cancer survivors leading a normal life after successful treatments, who can be a source of inspiration to others. Dr. Eni also highlighted that cancer among children is curable and parents should not lose hope in getting the best treatment for their children.
