Malaysian singer and fashion designer Siti Nurhaliza is taking her cosmetics company SimplySiti one step further with an upcoming campaign called HOPE Campaign 2016. Held in collaboration with the National Cancer Society Malaysia, KPJ Healthcare and Guardian Malaysia, HOPE Campaign 2016 aims to raise awareness of cervical cancer and educate women on how to detect it before it's too late.

"Besides breast cancer, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in Malaysia," Siti told BH Online. "At least 80% of women, who are active sexually, can be infected by the HPV virus that causes cervical cancer, at least once in their lives."

"Around the world, cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer that affects women. Over 265,672 women die from this disease, with 99% of women affected by the HPV virus. Every two minutes around the world, a woman dies from cervical cancer," she added. She also said that age does not affect the chances of getting the virus.

Throughout the month of May 2016, customers who spend over RM100 on SimplySiti products at any Guardian outlet will receive a special HOPE Campaign 2016 package. It will contain passes to related workshops, sharing sessions with women who have been affected, Pap smear test sets worth RM40, a cervical cancer test package and special discounts for HPV vaccinations.

Now you've got no excuse.
