In year 2002, two cancer survivors, one from Malaysia and the other from USA, initiated the idea of adapting and translating selected educational materials into Malay language as one of the ways in providing the much needed information on breast cancer treatment in Malaysia.
Their effort evolved into major educational activity; Cancer Education and Research Project (CaEd). Leadership for this program is being provided cooperatively by Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and Cornell University. CaEd formally commenced its operation in Malaysia in September 2003.
In 2008, a center called Cancer Resource & Education Center (CaRE) was set up to house the activities of cancer education, information and support programs.
This center was officially launched on 8 July 2009 by YB Senator Dato’ Sri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, Minister of Women, Family and Community Development.
In August 2011, CaRE was institutionalized under UPM as a Center of Excellence.
