PINK RIBBON WELLNESS (L) FOUNDATION
Pink Ribbon Wellness (L) Foundation (LAF 00046) “PRWF” was registered on 28 February 2012 as a Labuan Charitable Foundation under the Labuan Foundations Act 2010. The Foundation envisions fighting breast cancer by empowering all women with sufficient knowledge and education on breast health care and preventive measures. PRWF strongly advocates regular breast screening for early detection of cancer, actively organises lectures on various treatment options by experts and most importantly makes available the much-needed supportive care towards a better life.
Lectures, workshops, peer support sessions and coffee chats are carried out weekly at the Patients Resource Centre for all to attend and learn more about maintaining a healthy life. We have been reaching out by way of corporate / public lectures and seminars nationwide to increase awareness of breast health and care in three main local languages in Malaysia. We have also conducted multiple breast care workshops for survivors since 2009 to date. Most importantly, we had organized three major Breast Cancer Teaching Conferences in 2012, 2015 and 2018.
Pink Ribbon Wellness (L) Foundation has spearheaded the formation of Pink Ribbon Alliances with 16 Breast Cancer Support Group nationwide, reaching out to the women community on breast cancer prevention programmes and breast cancer survivors’ workshops.
Our logo ‘Pink Ribbon with a Heart’ symbolizes the fight against breast cancer from the caring heart of Survivors and Volunteers.

Puan Sri Maniseh Adam
To keep the body in good health is a duty. Otherwise we shall not be able to keep our minds strong and clear. Good health and good sense are two of the greatest blessings.
Memastikan badan sentiasa sihat adalah tanggungjawab utama kita.
Seandainya diabaikan, kesihatan minda kita juga akan terjejas.
Kesihatan yang luhur dan pemikiran yang waras adalah dua anugerah yang tidak ternilai.

Message from Founder & Honorary CEO
Ms. Yong Lee Lee
Breast Cancer affects 1 in 19 women in Malaysia and more than 40% present at late stage. So, no matter who you are or where you live, understanding breast cancer is important. Women above 40 years of age are reminded to do mammogram screening every 2 years.
Remember, diagnosis is not a death sentence as breast cancer can be treated when detected early.
As a survivor since 2006, I am blessed to be given a second chance and together with PRWF’s volunteers, we strive to reach out to more women and hope that one day no one will suffer due to breast cancer. Our motto “Never A Victim, Always A Fighter” is our driving force.
Early Detection Saves Lives!
