CAKNE or “Cancer Associates and Kindred Network” is a support group for childhood cancer patients treated in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre (PPUKM). It was formed in 2008 by Mohd Shah Awaluddin and wife Nor Hashimah Sulaiman together with several other parents of cancer children.
CAKNE provides moral, material and financial support to cancer children and their families regardless of races, religions and backgrounds. Since inception CAKNE has served approximately 500 patients. Our objectives are to share knowledge and experience; to create awareness on childhood cancer, its treatment and caretaking; and to encourage volunteerism and philanthropy among Malaysian.
