IA Salon and Lady bikers raise awarness on breast cancer

In conjunction with the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, IA Salon and Brunei’s Lady Bikers has joined hands in raising the awareness of Breast cancer in Brunei Darussalam.

Brunei  lady bikers along with staff of IA Salon, had distributed pink ribbons to members of the public in recognition to survivors, family and friends of survivors and victims of the disease.

A pink ribbon is worn to recognise the struggle that sufferers face when battling with the cancer. The pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness, and a symbol in honouring the month and commitment to fight against breast cancer.

IA Salon manager Cecilia Lee said that the breast cancer awareness drive by the Salon and the Brunei Lady bikers is an initiative to raise breast cancer awareness to the public. She said that the pink ribbons distributed on the day are a show of commitment by IA Salon staff and members of the Brunei Lady Bikers on the support of the Breast Cancer awareness month.

They hoped that during the day that everyone in the mall will be wearing the pink ribbons distributed by the lady bikers and IA Salon staff.  She explained that the breast cancer awareness drive is part of the IA Salon’s 6th year anniversary, where in previous years, charity events are organised to mark the anniversary.

Meanwhile, two young teen boys also joined the band wagon and volunteered to help in raising awareness during the event. They said that during their research on breast cancer they have found that not only women suffer from the disease.  Men get it too. Although its a small percentage, but there are cases where men have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

They also said that they were also shocked to discover a little girl in Canada has contracted the disease at an early age. At the age of 4, she is the youngest person ever to be diagnosed with breast cancer. Doctors are dumbfounded with the discovery and have no explanation on how a little girl could be diagnosed with the disease.

They said that they cannot begin to imagine the pain and suffering one goes through when they discover that they have breast cancer. From the testimonials of breast cancer survivors and breast cancer suffers they’ve been able to see glimpses of the trials and challenges the individuals have gone through.

Through the breast cancer awareness drive they hope they can make a difference and an impact on raising the breast cancer awareness in Brunei.

There is still not enough awareness on breast cancer in Brunei. In fact not many groups raise their hands in creating public awareness; we hope we changed that today. Our thoughts and prayers goes to the individuals as well as families of breast cancers survivors and we bring a message of hope to those individuals who are still fighting breast cancer, know that our thoughts and prayers are with you, and you will always have our support.

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN Ahad 3 otktober – Kanser payudara telah menjadi satu penyakit yang tidak mengenal batasan, miskin, kaya, tua, muda turut diancam. Pemakanan merupakan satu faktor yang ada kaitan dengan pencegahan, rawatan dan pemulihan.

Dengan itu bagi memberi pendedahan dan kesedaran mengenai penyakit kanser payudara, IA Salon Sdn Bhd dan penunggang motorsikal perempuan telah bergabung dan membuat initatif bagi memberi kesedaran mengenai kanser payu dara.

Menurut Pengurus IA Salon, kesedaran mengenai penyakit kanser payu dara adalah penting, dan sempena sambutan 6 tahun IA Salon, IA Salon telah bergabung dengan ahli-ahli penunggang motosikal perempuan bagi meningkatkan kesedaran mengenai penyakit tersebut.

Kakitangan IA Salon dan juga ahli-ahli penunggang motosikal wanita telah mengedarkan reben merah jambu ‘pink’ kepada  orang awam di Mall Gadong, dalam sokongan bulan kesedaran kanser payudara .

Satu reben merah jambu dipakai untuk mengiktiraf perjuangan bagi yang menghidap kanser payudara.  Reben merah jambu, ialah satu lambang antarabangsa kesedaran barah buah dada , dan satu simbol dalam menghormati bulan dan komitmen melawan penyakit kanser payu dara.

Kesedaran untuk Kanser Payudara  adalah  penting dalam pengiktirafan untuk orang yang terselamat, keluarga dan rakan-rakan orang yang terselamat dan mangsa-mangsa penyakit itu, dengan itu ahli-ahli penunggang motosikal wanita dan juga pihak IA Salon berazam bagi memberi reben merah jambu tersebut kepada sebanyak orang mungkin.

Manakala dua remaja lelaki yang telah secara sukerela memberi sokongan mengenai kesedaraan kanser payu dara mengatakan bahawa mereka sangat gembira dengan peluang untuk mengikut serta bagi mendedahkan mengenai kesedaran penyakit kanser payu dara tersebut.

Malah mereka juga mengatakan bahawa pendedahan mengenai penyakit tersebut tidak sebegitu kuat di negara ini. Mereka telah membuat kajian melalui internet mengenai penyakit tersebut dan telah mendapati bahawa ada anak kecil di Canada berumut 4 tahun yang telah mengidap penyakit kanser payu dara.

Mereka mengatakan bahawa sebanyak 35% kanser mempunyai kaitan dengan pemakanan. Kaitan ini meningkat sebanyak 80% sekiranya ditambah faktor merokok dan kekurangan senaman. Kadar kanser payudara mempunyai sebanyak 50% kaitan dengan apa yang kita makan.

Insiden kanser (bilangan kes kanser baru) semakin meningkat.  Statistik bagi fenomena ini lebih menakutkan di negara seperti Amerika Syarikat dengan 184,000 kes baru kanser payu dara di kenal pasti setiap tahun.

Kanser payudara adalah kanser paling biasa keseluruhannya dan kanser paling biasa di kalangan semua wanita dari umur 20 tahun. Lebih daripada separuh daripada wanita yang didiagnosis dengan kanser berumur kurang daripada 50 tahun

Penyebab utama kanser payudara masih belum diketahui dan dipercayai bahawa lebih daripada satu faktor yang mengakibatkannya. Pakar pengkaji percaya bahawa faktor penyebab termasuk faktor genetik dan faktor alam sekitar.

Keutamaan telah ditumpukan kapada individu yang mempunyai risiko tinggi. Berapa sebab telah pun dikaji dengan teliti

Faktor-faktor risiko yang sudah diketahui akan membolehkan individu yang berisiko tinggi menerima manafaat daripada kawalan rapi iaitu daripada pemeriksaan rapi klinikal dan pemeriksaan mammografi. Walaubagaimanapun, wanita yang tidak mempunyai faktor-faktor risiko boleh menghidapi kanser. Jadi, faktor-faktor risiko tidak boleh memberi ramalan yang tepat.

Mereka berharap bahawa inititif mereka serta IA Salon dan ahli-ahli penunggang motosikal wanita dapat memberi kesedaran kepada orang ramai mengenai penyakit kanser payudara, dan kepada sesiapa yang telah mengidap kanser payu dara mahupun yang sedang mendapatkan rawatan mengenai penyakit tersebut akan dapat terus berjuang, dan sokongan dan doa-doa mereka akan sentiasa bersama individu-individu dan keluarga tersebut.

Bitter Sweet experience for Brunei Paragliding Team

brunei paragliding team in Bahau Malaysia

brunei paragliding team in Bahau Malaysia

It was touch and go for the Brunei Team competing in the Jempol Paragliding Team in Bahau, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. Not only was it a first experience for the Brunei team to compete in an endurance event but it was a bitter sweet experience as Siti Khadijah had to sit out for the rest of the three day tournament after she got injured during her second day of time trials in the endurance event.

Junaidi Hj Jumat said that it was the first time for them to compete in an endurance challenge, the spot or accurate landing event was cancelled and only the endurance challenge was being competed in.

This had not only put a hole in their strategy but also on every other team that had hoped to score in the accurate landing event. He said that in all the international competitions that was held in Indonesia and Jugra Malaysia, they had only competed in the spot landing event.bru para

Meanwhile Siti Khadijah said that the injury she had received was due to the uneven ground when she had landed. She said that she had accidently stepped into a hole and had fallen on a sharp rock where it had cut her hand deeply.

In paragliding you need your hands to not only steer the glider, but also to erect it prior to takeoff. Hence with her hand bandaged up and she can hardly hold a spoon. She again flew on the last day of the carnival, but again had crash landed due to her earlier injury.

The particular landing area had also caused the injury of a British Paraglider, where his foot was caught on a rock, causing the bone to jut out of his ankle.

The gliding spot in Bahau, is particularly tricky, as the air currents and thermals are unpredictable. In particular when approaching a certain landing area, at times the thermal updraft just would not allow the paraglider to land, and they will be thermalling for over half an hour.

Team captain Hj  Mohammad Shafri bin Hj Mohd Salleh said that if nothing else this is a good experience for the team, as not only are they able to hunt for thermals they are also able to soar high and stay in the air longer.

He said that although the conditions in Bahau for the carnival has not been very good, with little or no wind and very little thermal, the team are able to stand their grounds amongst the top parasailing pilots  from around the world, who are also finding it difficult to stay in the air for long periods at a time.

He said that during the practice run both Junaidi and Siti had only a short time to get used to the idea of thermaling and finding a good spot for the high lifts. However during the day of the carnival they didn’t manage to get any lift, for two reasons, one was that there were hardly any stable wind for take off, the second was that the thermal would come and go.

Unlike other competitors who had came equipped ready with gliders meant from soaring or cross country, the gliders of Junaidi and Siti’s were not made to soar, but specifically for sport landing. International participants were also frustrated with the turn of events, where most of them had brought equipment and gliders for sport landing and not endurance, or cross country flying.

The participants were only told during the opening briefing that the sport landing competition was cancelled, due to ‘technical’ reasons.

Nevertheless, with the experienced from Bahau, the Brunei team will be more better prepared with any endurance or cross country event, though during this particular competition Brunei didn’t win any places, they had gained invaluable experience in regards to the flying sport discipline.
