Cansurvive Demystifies Causes and Prevention of Cancer At 12th Malaysian International Conference on Holistic Healing 2022

Non-profit cancer charity organisation Cansurvive Malaysia’s annual International Conference on Holistic Healing from Cancer is slated to be back in physical form after two years of going digital due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the theme “Cancer: Causes and Prevention”, the conference, which will take place on 17 September at Times Square Hotel & Convention Centre, will feature a diverse pool of nine highly qualified subject matter experts from Australia, Germany, India and Malaysia.

Given the worldwide health turmoil over the last two years, the topic of disease causes and prevention is timely and relevant. Dr C D Siby, President of Cansurvive said “There are a lot of rumors and myths about cancer that make it hard to know what’s true. We hope the conference will provide answers to some of the questions on people’s minds.”

Remember the proverb ‘prevention is better than cure’? It is very important for us to be aware of the list of known and probable cancer-causing carcinogens and learn how we can avoid those potential carcinogens in our daily lives.”

Dr Siby went on to explain: “ We have the ability to limit any disease from developing if we take charge of our lifestyle and dietary habits. Unfortunately, due to our ignorance and lack of information we don’t take it seriously. Cansurvive Malaysia calls for government agencies, private organisations and NGOs to play a bigger role in educating the public, starting with educating children and youth at school.”

Since 2011, Cansurvive Malaysia has been hosting their annual conference for people challenged with cancer and their families and friends, as well as others interested in the subject matter, free of charge, just like all other Cansurvive’s conferences.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank our main sponsor Malaysia Foundation , Founder Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Vincent Tan for his generosity for fully sponsoring our conference this year ,” added Dr Siby.

This year, there will also be a workshop in conjunction with the conference, held on 18 September. Titled “28 Days Cancer Control Program”, the workshop is taught by Dr Christine Gonzalez from Cansurvive Philippines.

Through its conferences and workshops, Cansurvive aims to provide extensive insights for people challenged by cancer, or those in remission, so they can augment their treatment plan to maximise their chances of a full recovery.
