Power Over Cervical Cancer

I mentioned a little bit about Power Over Cervical Cancer in my previous post
I strongly feel that this is a great cause and should be shared to everyone here once again

Please lend me your 5 minutes, it will do good returns to all the women in this world with just a little effort from you



Power Over Cervical Cancer (POCC)
(What is this?)

A disease awareness campaign against cervical cancer that is launched by National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM). This advocates women to take the first step towards protecting themselves against cervical cancer via vaccination and regular pap smears.

POCC aims to continuously educate women on cervical cancer and the risk factors of the disease.

A Quick View about Cervical Cancer


  •  3rd most common cancer among Malaysian women and 3 women was diagnosed with cervical cancer everyday
  •  Awareness of cervical cancer in Malaysia is very low
  •  Cervical cancer is preventable! (This is a very good news!)

This is the Key Messaging in 2010/2011 for this cause :

  • Best Friends Forever (BFF) - if we're going to be BFFs, you're going to have to help with the forever part
  • Protect yourself and your best friends against cervical cancer
For the guys, with the knowledge and awareness that you have, you can protect your girlfriends!


Let's take a look at the activities!

To make pledge via Roving Pinkies, POCC Website (http://www.pocc.com.my/) and POCC Pink Bazaar & Auction @ Zouk KL to enter the Malaysia Book of Records.

After the 24,000 pledge photos target was reached, there will be the Biggest Pink Party @ Zouk KL

Let's find out more about the activities!


Roving Pinkies 
(This is how I was approached!)

  •  Ladies dressed in pink will be around 1Utama, The Curve and Sunway Pyramid to spread the POCC message and approach ladies to pledge their support on the spot. POCC brochures will be given out as well.
  •  All photos taken will go towards making the Malaysia Book of Records entry.


When : Month of October (Opps, it is over!)
Time : 12pm-8pm
Venue : The malls mentioned above



  •  Lots of information in the website for people who wants to learn more about cervical cancer
  •  It is useful, interactive and user friendly


Don't worry if you missed the chance to pledge, you can directly go to the website and click PLEDGE to start. Then, upload a photo or immediately take it with your webcam. You are then one step closer towards breaking the Malaysia Book of Records!

Participate in this good cause for the protection of all women against cervical cancer. The more people know about this, the more women in Malaysia who can be better prepared against cervical cancer.
