The Breast Cancer Resource Centre and Candy Girls Support Group of Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) are delighted to announce a memorable evening filled with inspiration, compassion, and a touch of cultural grace. We invite the community to join us at the upcoming "Shine for Pink” Charity Gala Dinner, scheduled for November 25th at Komune Living & Wellness in Cheras.

Our esteemed Patron and Chairman of The Lion-Parkson Foundation, Puan Sri Chelsia Chan Chau Ha, who has provided unwavering support since 2019, will grace the evening, setting the tone for an event that symbolises resilience and strength in the face of adversity. Joining us will be Professor Dr. Nazirah Binti Hasnan, Director of Universiti Malaya Medical Centre, a driving force behind our mission to bridge the gap in breast cancer care, as well as the Ambassadors of UMMC’s Pink October 2023, Dato’ Sri Shyleena Faridah Hope (Founder of Mrs Asia Worldwide Sdn Bhd) and Miss Chiong Pei-Pei (Chief Brand Officer of eSHOPlive). Our Pink October 2023 Advisor, Professor Dr. See Mee Hoong, a consultant breast surgeon and a driving force in breast cancer research and fundraising at UMMC, will also be in attendance.

Bringing an emotionally charged dimension to the event's programme, breast cancer survivors from our Candy Girls Support Group will take the stage for captivating performances. The evening will commence with their rendition of Mariah Carey's "Hero," setting the tone for the night. Additionally, the Candy Girls will showcase dynamic and graceful dance performances. Their presence serves as a beacon of inspiration, reinforcing our commitment to those who continue to battle this formidable adversary.

In collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture (MOTAC), we are thrilled to present a fashion show featuring models from Shine Angels and Mrs. Asia Worldwide. They will elegantly showcase our traditional attire, the Kebaya, designed by Pakar Busana Melayu and Mrs. Asia Worldwide. The Kebaya, a timeless cultural gem, reflects grace and tradition, and this showcase aligns with our efforts to garner UNESCO’s recognition of the Kebaya as a world heritage. Representatives from Tourism Malaysia, En Azizul Raheem Awalludin (Senior Assistant Director, Domestic & Events Division, Tourism Malaysia), Dr. Khairul Helmi A Manap (Senior Assistant Director, Corporate Management), Mr. Azmi Abdullah, and Cik Nazasheera, also attended the dinner on behalf of the Director General, Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board (Tourism Malaysia), Dato' Dr Ammar Abd Ghapar.

Amongst the attendees were also venerable guests, including YHs Dato' Mustaffa Idrus, Chairman of Pertubuhan Aktivis Masyarakat Melayu Malaysia (PAMM), Professor Datin Paduka Dr Teoh Soo-Hwang, the Founding Chief Executive of Cancer Research Malaysia, Captain Cheah Eng Eng and Senior Vice President of Keyfields Offshore Sdn Bhd.

The Pink Gala Dinner is more than an event; it's a symbol of unity in the fight against breast cancer. As a one-stop centre for breast cancer care, our team receives patients nationwide, with a majority of them coming from the B40 economic group who are unable to finance their diagnostic investigations and lose the opportunity for an early diagnosis. Patients are forced to delay treatment, which reduces their overall survival rate. 100% of proceeds will go towards the B40 Diagnostic Fund (under PPUMCare), which is dedicated to providing financial support to these underprivileged patients who often bear the burden of this disease. We believe that by joining hands and hearts, we can make a significant impact on the lives of those affected by breast cancer.
