LITE breast cancer awareness campaign culminates with Shaz’s Breast Cancer Fight Club
Organised in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, LITE conducted a heartfelt sharing session with Shaz’s Breast Cancer Fight Club, to increase breast cancer awareness on 2 November.
Throughout October, LITE aired and showcased various stories of breast cancer survivors from young to old. This awareness campaign culminated in Shaz’s Breast Cancer Fight Club where Shaz (LITE Breakfast announcer) shared her personal story, followed by stories by five breast cancer survivors and their families, who shared their respective inspiring and emotional journeys.
Stories from Shaz’s Breast Cancer Fight Club included those from Dr. Siti Zubaidah, a medical doctor who was diagnosed before graduation; Claire Khoo, diagnosed as a 33-year-old breastfeeding mother to a seven-month-old son; Mahani Kassim, an avid traveller who was diagnosed at age 53; Audrey Herrera, diagnosed at age 46, and dealt with some of her darkest family moments after; and, Zuraya Omar, diagnosed when she was 45, fighting through recent relapse. (Please refer to the appendix for more details of each survivor).
