Can dark skinned people get skin cancer? Malaysians always think that our darker skin protects us from skin cancer.... and it does, but not always. Experts from the American Academy of Dermatology share with us how dark-skinned people can actually get cancer and how do we perform monthly skin checks to detect any abnormalities when they may appear https://www.aad.org/…/skin-c…/skin-cancer-in-people-of-color

At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honour cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. And for Relay For Life Malaysia, we are honoured to have survivors coming from different countries in support of the worldwide movement like Daisuke Okabe, who came all the way from Japan just to celebrate Relay with us. Diagnosed in 2005 with a rare type of cancer called extragonadal germ cell tumour when he was just finishing up his master course, he felt that he had no one to rely on. But soon a year after, he joined his first Relay in Japan (リレー・フォー・ライフ・ジャパン（公式ページ）)when they first started in 2006. “At first, I did not have a specific reason to participate,” Daisuke says. “But as I joined Relay, I got to know other survivors and listen to their stories. “And even though they are different from me, as some was older, and some was younger, and no one had the same type of cancer as I had, I realised we had one thing in common -- we were all survivors.” Daisuke found out about Relay For Life Malaysia through American Cancer Society’s web page - the official Cancer Society that started the Relay Movement. He found out that we started our relay almost the same time as Japan. “So I thought it would be reasonable to choose Malaysia to participate and became a relayer in 2016.” What Daisuke liked the most about Relay For Life Malaysia is the multicultural celebration. He was also impressed by the positivity of our cancer survivors, many of whom are willing to share and talk about cancer in public. Nobody, including you, should face cancer alone. Come together as a community to celebrate our warriors and remember those that have passed on. Thank you again to our warriors and relayers for making the event a success. We hope to see you all again next year!
