NCI Cancer Hospital (NCI), Malaysia’s private specialist cancer centre, celebrated its 10th year anniversary with a food and entertainment carnival recently.

The one-day event, organised jointly with the National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM), was NCI’s way of connecting and giving back to the community for its support.
 
“We are the first in Southeast Asia to introduce the Trilogy System to cater to the needs of patients requiring high-end precision radiotherapy.
 
Although our main thrust is in the treatment of cancer, we are actively involved in clinical trials with international organisations, ” said Dr G. Selvaratnam, head of oncology and radiation therapy, who is also head of clinical research at NCI Cancer Hospital.
 
He added that the hospital would continue to provide cancer treatment to the community as well as advocate better cancer awareness.
 
The celebration also saw performances from Mawi, Yan Wan Qian – Astro Talent Quest Champion 2009, and the Kebayarobics team from Singapore who performed for the first time in Malaysia.
