A Holistic Support Model
SCCS adopts a holistic approach in providing care and relief for children and families battling childhood cancer. Support is given upon diagnosis through to the remission and survivorship. For bereaved cases, post bereavement support is given for up to 1 year. Support provided by SCCS is directed at helping the children and caregivers in all dimensions: spiritually, mentally, socio-emotionally, economically and physically.
In 2014, SCCS set up their Palliative care services with the objective of providing better assistance and support to children and families when treatment has poor outcome and the cure of disease is less plausible.
Services provided include:
- Weekly home visits with the medical team to assess the physical, emotional and financial needs of the child and his/her caregivers.
- Wishing Star project
The wishing Star project main objective is to enhance the quality of life of the children by creating meaningful and magical moments with their families by way of wish granting. Wishes granted by SCCS come in the form or experiences and gifts. Some of the wishes granted thus far include visit to Legoland in Johor Bahru, beach resorts, themed birthday parties, dvd players, tabs, remote control cars etc.
Bereavement and Post Bereavement Support
Bereavement support is given in the form of monetary donation and emotional support to assist grieving families through the loss of their loved one. Post bereavement follow-ups via telephone or home visits are conducted up to 1 year.
SCCS organizes a memorial day each year for bereaved families, staff and volunteers to come together to remember the little fighters who have passed away from cancer.
