THRIVING BEYOND CANCER: Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur's Heartfelt Month of Celebration and Support to Cancer Survivors with Special June Activities

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, June 7, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur (PHKL), a beacon of medical excellence and compassionate patient care, proudly announces a series of events in celebration of Cancer Survivor Month. These activities underscore PHKL’s unwavering commitment to supporting cancer survivors and their families, reaffirming its role as a leader in innovative healthcare and patient support.

Fundraising Movie Night – A Special Screening of Rain Town

Join us for a meaningful evening at the special screening of Rain Town, hosted by Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur as part of the Wear it Pink: Survive & Thrive 365 campaign. This special showing of the acclaimed indie film will be held on June 15, 2024, at GSC, The Starling Mall. Tickets are priced at RM100 per ticket, with all profits channelled to PHKL’s Wear It Pink initiatives. These funds will support breast cancer survivors by providing breast prostheses and mastectomy brassieres.

Rain Town tells the poignant story of a family navigating the challenges and conflicts that threaten to tear them apart, much like the journey of many cancer survivors who face and overcome tremendous personal and familial obstacles. The film’s central character, Aileen, embodies resilience and strength, qualities that resonate deeply with the cancer survivor community. Directed by Tunku Mona Riza, the film has been praised for its powerful performances and its heartfelt portrayal of a Malaysian family’s struggle and unity, echoing the perseverance and support that families go through battling cancer with their loved ones. Seats are limited, so book your slot now to ensure you don’t miss out on this impactful event.

Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur Pledge to Screen Cancer Awareness Campaign

From June 19-21, 2024, PHKL will host a pledging campaign across three different locations each day, starting with Plaza Sentral, followed by Menara TM and Menara Maybank, from 9:00AM to 5:00PM. The objective of the campaign is to emphasise the importance of early detection and treatment of cancer, encouraging participants to pledge their commitment towards preventive healthcare through regular screening. Those who pledge will receive a RM50 health screening voucher and be entitled to a spin-and-win giveaway. The public can also register for a very special 50th anniversary health screening package, along with other comprehensive check-up and preventive cancer screening packages.

The hospital aims to collect 500 pledges and more through the awareness campaign, which will be a catalyst for PHKL’s drive to educate Malaysians on the benefits of preventive health screening.
