Vygon Asia donated 30 Vygon Polysite ISP implantable ports (chemo-port) for patients undergoing chemotherapy in Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital.
Vygon’s Polysite ISP port is usually offered when a patient’s medical treatment requires regular administration of medicines and infusions, such as cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. During the procedure veins can undergo thinning, locating veins to inject medicine and draw blood can become very difficult even for qualified medical personnel. Without the help of chemo ports, repeated jabbing to locate these very thin veins might be inevitable. Chemo ports are a pain-free and efficient solution for addressing this issue.

Mount Miriam Roche Cares Program
Mount Miriam has partnered Roche Malaysia to launch the Mount Miriam – Roche Cares Program, to help reduce the financial burden of HER2-positive breast cancer patients.
Under this program, Roche Malaysia will supply 180 vials of targeted therapy while Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital has pledged RM 1 million from its Needy Cancer Patient Fund to help HER2-positive breast cancer patients.
Through this partnership, eligible HER2-positive cancer patients are entitled to the targeted therapy at a subsidised rate where patients pay RM2,100 only for a cycle instead of RM 8,900. Patients gain a substantial savings of up to 75% of a standard treatment that usually requires up to 18 cycles.
