Nelleisa Omar

Founder of The Godmothers

Nelleisa, aged 34 was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer, Stage 3 in May 2016 and underwent a single mastectomy, 16 rounds of chemotherapy and 15 radiotherapy over the period of 7 months.

As she was going through treatment, an ex colleague was inspired by her recovery story and drew a portrait of her displaying the strength which was embodied while going through treatment with the tagline "Screw Cancer". The portrait was then printed on tshirts which was quickly sold out and the profits went to the National Cancer Society of Malaysia.

With that, Nell and her best friend created the brand "The Godmothers", where it carries messages of strength and hope on their journey to further amplify on matters to cancer awareness.

From conveying messages via t-shirts, it then expanded to more initiatives where she hopes to inspire more individuals, not only cancer warriors and survivors but healthy individuals where one should not stop when theres a block, but to continue to strive for what may seem impossible.

Nell loves to travel to new places, and also new adventures where despite her situation, she just completed her Open Water certification and next would be to conquer Mt Kinabalu and Mt. Rinjani.

"Always believe in yourself and never stop doing what you love best. Just because you have cancer, life takes a halt."

Speaker for:

Sometimes, you hear dark stories on how Cancer stops you from doing what you love. Freshly out of surgery, Nell had the same thoughts. But realizing how pointless it would be to think that life has come to an end, it is only just beginning. Listen to her journey of self-discovery on achieving what Cancer warriors or survivors can do when others say otherwise.
