Latar Belakang PDK Selayang


PDK Selayang (Pusat Pemulihan Dalam Komuniti Selayang) telah ditubuhkan pada 1hb Sept 1991, oleh sekumpulan ibubapa kepada kanak-kanak kurang upaya (pada masa tersebut dipanggil sebagai kanak-kanak istimewa) yang anak-anak mereka telah dikeluarkan dari pembelajaran wajib di sekolah-sekolah aliran perdana di Selayang, dengan alasan mereka (OKU tersebut) "tidak boleh belajar". Alasan sebenar Guru Besar sekolah-sekolah tersebut ialah mereka takut graf pencapaian sekolah akan menurun.

Bermula dengan 15 orang kanak-kanak kurang upaya kelas diadakan sekali seminggu pada setiap hari Sabtu dari jam 8:30 pagi hingga 1:00 tengahari, dengan dilatih oleh seorang Petugas PDK (panggilan Cikgu PDK pada masa tersebut) iaitu Puan Noraini Othman.

Hari ini PDK Selayang telah berkembang pesat dengan jumlah pelatih OKU PDK seramai 102 orang melalui beberapa program iaitu Kelas Harian EIP, Kelas Harian LPV, Kelas Harian Pemulihan Perubatan (Pemulihan Anggota, Pemulihan Pertuturan dan Pemulihan Carakerja), Lawatan ke Rumah dan Program Rumah Kelompok (lelaki).

Kumpulan Sasar Utama:

Bladder Cancer Survival Rates

Bladder Cancer Survival Rates

Survival rates are closely tied to the stage at diagnosis. About half of  bladder cancers are caught when the disease is confined to the inner lining of the bladder. Nearly 100% of these people will live at least five years, compared to people without bladder cancer. The more advanced the cancer, the lower this figure becomes. But keep in mind that these rates are based on people diagnosed from 1988 to 2001. 

Complementary Approaches

Currently, no complementary treatments are known to treat or prevent bladder cancer, but research is ongoing. Studies are looking at whether extracts of green tea or broccoli sprouts may help in treating people with bladder cancer.

Living With Bladder Cancer

Cancer is a life-changing experience. And although there's no surefire way of preventing a recurrence, you can take steps to feel and stay healthy. Eating plenty of fruits, veggies, whole grains, and keeping to modest portions of lean meat is a great start. If you smoke, stop. Limit alcohol to one or two drinks a day, if you drink. Daily exercise and regular checkups will also support your health and give you peace of mind.

New and Experimental Treatments

Several new treatments may prove useful in treating bladder cancer. Photodynamic therapy, used in early stage cancers, uses a laser light to activate a chemical that kills cancer cells. Some gene therapies use lab-created viruses to fight cancer. And targeted therapies aim to control the growth of cancer cells. You may be eligible to participate in a clinical trial of these or other cutting-edge treatments.

Bladder Cancer Treatments

Treatment: Surgery

Transurethral surgery is most often done for early-stage cancers. If cancer has invaded more of the bladder, the surgeon will most likely perform either a partial cystectomy, removing a portion of the bladder, or a radical cystectomy, to remove the entire bladder. For men, the prostate and urethra may also be removed. For women, the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and part of the vagina may also be removed

Treatment: After Surgery

If your entire bladder must be removed, your surgeon will construct another means of storing and passing urine. A piece of your intestine may be used to create a tube that allows urine to flow into an external urostomy bag. In some cases, an internal reservoir -- drained via a catheter -- can be constructed. Newer surgeries offer the possibility of normal urination through the creation of an artificial bladder.

Treatment: Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy involves drugs designed to kill cancer cells. These drugs may be given before surgery to shrink tumors, making them easier to remove. Chemotherapy is also used to destroy any cancer cells left after surgery and to lower the chances that the cancer will return. Hair loss, nausea, loss of appetite, and fatigue are common side effects. The drugs can be given by vein or directly into the bladder.

Treatment: Immunotherapy

This type of treatment is delivered directly to your bladder, so it doesn’t treat cancer that has spread beyond it. One treatment, Bacillus Calmette-Guerin therapy, sends in helpful bacteria through a catheter. It triggers your immune system to attack the cancer. Flu-like symptoms are a common side effect of the once-a-week treatment. Immunotherapy may be used after surgery to reduce the risk of recurrence.

Treatment: Radiation

Radiation uses invisible, high-energy beams, like X-rays, to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. It's most often given from outside the body by machine. Radiation is often used in tandem with other treatments, such as chemotherapy and surgery. For people who can't undergo surgery, it may be the main treatment. Side effects can include nausea, fatigue, skin irritation, diarrhea, and pain when urinating.

Stages of Bladder Cancer

Stages of Bladder Cancer

Stage 0: Cancer stays in the inner lining.

Stage I: Cancer has spread to the bladder wall.

Stage II: Cancer has reached the muscle of the bladder wall.

Stage III: Cancer has spread to fatty tissue around the bladder.

Stage IV: Cancer has spread to the pelvic or abdominal wall, lymph nodes, or distant sites such as bone, liver, or lungs.

Types of Bladder Cancer

Types of Bladder Cancer

The main types of bladder cancer are named for the type of cells that become cancerous. The most common is transitional cell carcinoma, which begins in the cells that line the inside of the bladder. Squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma are much less common.

Bladder Cancer : Diagnosis

Diagnosis: Testing

There's no routine test for bladder cancer. But if you're at high risk or have symptoms, your doctor may first order a urine test. If needed, a procedure called cystoscopy lets your doctor see inside the bladder with a slender lighted tube with a camera on the end. The cystoscope can be used to remove small tissue samples (a biopsy) to be examined under a microscope. A biopsy is the best way to diagnose cancer.

Diagnosis: Imaging

If cancer is found, imaging tests can show whether it has spread beyond the bladder. Anintravenous pyelogram uses dye to outline the kidneys, bladder, and ureters, the tubes that carry urine to the bladder. CT and MRI scansgive more detailed images of these, and can show the lymph nodes nearby. An ultrasounduses sound waves, instead of radiation, to produce images. Additional imaging tests look for cancer in the lungs and bone.

Risk Factor of Bladder Cancer, Leading by Smoking

Risk Factor: Smoking

Although the exact causes of bladder cancer remain unknown, smoking is the leading risk factor. Smokers are about four times more likely to get bladder cancer than people who have never smoked. Chemicals in tobacco smoke are carried from the lungs to the bloodstream, then filtered by the kidneys into urine. This concentrates harmful chemicals in the bladder, where they damage cells that can give rise to cancer.

Risk Factor: Chemical Exposure

Research suggests that certain jobs may increase your risk for bladder cancer. Metal workers, mechanics, and hairdressers are among those who may be exposed to cancer-causing chemicals. If you work with dyes, or in the making of rubber, textiles, leather, or paints, be sure to follow safety procedures to reduce contact with dangerous chemicals. Smoking further increases risk from chemical exposure.

Other Risk Factors

Anyone can get bladder cancer, but these factors put you at greater risk:
  • Gender: Men are three times more likely to get bladder cancer.
  • Age: Nine out of 10 cases occur over age 55.
  • Race: Whites have twice the risk of African-Americans.

Warning Sign of Bladder Cancer

Warning Sign: Blood in Urine

Blood in the urine can be a sign of bladder cancer, either visible to the eye or picked up by routine testing. The urine may look darker than usual, brownish, or (rarely) bright red. Most commonly, blood in the urine is not caused by cancer, but by other causes. These include exercise, trauma, infections, blood or kidney disorders, or drugs, such as blood thinners.

Warning Sign: Bladder Changes

Bladder symptoms are more likely to come from conditions other than cancer. But bladder cancer can sometimes cause changes to bladder habits, including:
  • Needing to go, with little or no results
  • Having to go more often than usual
  • Painful urination
  • Difficulty urinating

What Is Bladder Cancer?

What Is Bladder Cancer?

Cancer is the growth of abnormal cells in the body. Bladder cancer typically begins in the inner lining of the bladder, the organ that stores urine after it passes from the kidneys. Most bladder cancers are caught early, when treatments are highly successful and the disease has not spread beyond the bladder. But bladder cancer tends to come back, so regular check-ups are important.

Pandu Laju : Kami Perlukan 120km/j Untuk Follow Bas Ekspress Ini

Kami perlukan 120km/j untuk follow bas ini sejauh 13km di Lebuhraya Utara Selatan, dari sebelum susur keluar Senawang/Seremban (KM 251) hingga ke hampiri kawasan R & R Seremban arah utara (KM 264);

Lepas tu kami xleh ikut dah cukuplah setakat 13km tu kami memandu 120km/j, 

Cuba bayangkan, dalam keadaan kenderaan banyak begitu pemandu tersebut boleh memandu selaju 120km/j; kalau Hiway kosong, bolehlah bagi dia jawatan pemandu bas roket.

Agaknya berapa Company bas ni bayar kepada pemandu ini untuk langgar peraturan jalanraya untuk:

1) Memandu Laju Ikut Suka Hatinya.
2) Undang-Undang Jalanraya Dibuat Untuk Dilanggar
3) Nyawa Penumpang Dalam Tanganku Bukan Dalam Tangan Tuhan (sebab SPAD kata nak buat pendekatan keagamaan dan ketuhanan dalam mendidik pemandu tahun ini)
4) Aku ada insurans! Ko ade!? PA lagi (PA-Personel Accident) (dalam perkataan lain PA bermakna Jemputan [Insurans] untuk Accident; kalau tak accident mana boleh claim, JADI NAK CLAIM KENALAH ACCIDENT; tak gitu. {tu sebab banyak accident kooooottttt}........

1) Aku Ada Share Dengan Menteri Pengangkutan Ape
2) JPJ Adalah Bapak Saudaraku.
3) Towke Bas Mak Saudaraku.
4) SPAD!!? Alaaa Anak Buah Aku

Jadi Sila lihat 16 photo di bawah, sebagai bukti perkara-perkara di atas:
