This is going to be a bit of a PSA for a project which I'm completely fangirl-y about. AXA has recently launched a programme which bloggers can get involved in. If you blog about it, they provide a day of care/treatment for 1 person, and it's pretty much nothing to help out with this.


Let's talk a bit about chemotherapy. It's terrible. Honestly. Between the marks on your arms from the infusions which make you look like a junkie, to the collapsed veins which make you feel like a junkie, to the hair fall and the nausea, there's absolutely nothing pleasant about it. And let's not forget the whole issue with murdering your white blood cells so that your immunity is non-existent.

Here's the thing, everyone says that you just need to do it, but it's a rarity that you hear about the stories of people who stop going through chemo because they just can't deal with the effects. They are truly horrible at times. You can't eat, but you keep puking bile, your hair starts dropping in strands and then fistfulls, you can't share food or eat raw vegetables to prevent catching anything. It's all the little things. If you aren't that far along in your cancer, it almost seems like the effects are worse than the disease.

And we can't forget the unsung heroes in all of this: The nurses! They are all too frequently forgotten, but it's very rare for a doctor to stick around during your chemotherapy. They will check in on you, but the nurses are there through the 3-6 hour process of chemo to watch over you and ensure that your needs are taken care of. They don't get nearly enough credit for it, either. They should. The patience and empathy it takes to work in a cancer ward is unparalleled, especially where you are dealing with children.

Of course, all this has its price tag. One bout of chemotherapy can cost anywhere from RM3,000 to RM6,000, depending on where you're getting your treatment. Add to that the cost of any medication you may require, follow-up visits, weekly or fortnightly blood tests, etc. and you have a bill that can put you into bankruptcy without even curing you. Treatment requires anywhere between 2 to 20 cycles of chemotherapy, and each cycle has 2 treatments. You do the math.

And so, this is just my little way of trying to help out.

AXA has a new package specifically designed to aid in this process, where their insurance policy has early payout upon diagnosis, and 20 years of coverage for 10 years of premium payment. If you are a blogger, I urge you to put up even a shot post so that someone gets one day of treatment free.

For more information, please visit AXA's site, and if you are a blogger, you can contact Mr. Danial Lissborg at danial.lissborg@lionandlion.com

  1. This is such a great little thing that we bloggers can do. I'm definitely going to try and get onto it. I'm fully in support of cancer awareness and you've reminded me that we can do something.
