Who are we

The Society is established for the relief and care of Malaysian children suffering from cancer and their families irrespective of race, religion and creed; and the advancement of research and public education in the prevention, control, diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer.  Sarawak Children’s Cancer Society (SCCS) is a non-profit voluntary organisation formed on 26th September, 1999 by a group of parents of children with cancer to discover ways in which they could help each other and their children.

Formally registered in 26th November, 2001, SCCS expanded her role in provision of financial and emotional support, accommodation for outstation families and treatment facilities based on the incidence of new cases of childhood cancer which reaches 60 to 70 patients a year.

As more children began to survive with improved treatment techniques, public education about childhood cancer, quality of life and future prospects for children with cancer were recognized as increasingly important. From the initial group of a few concerned parents, the Society’s membership has now grown to include people from all over Sarawak who share the Society’s aims and concerns.
