Survivors

Being a single-discipline hospital that specialises in cancer, Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital makes it a point to celebrate the resilience and fighting spirit of cancers survivors. We strongly believe that every survivor has the ability to share their experiences to empower and encourage others.

If you wish to submit your story to encourage others, feel free to share or talk to us via cr@mountmiriam.com or +6048923875, or join our Patient’s Support Group, a team of volunteer survivors with a mission to give moral support to new cancer patients.
