Hospital Executive Director Liz Oke said: "Macmillan Cancer Care is a charity which is extremely close to our hearts.

"Every day we see people who have been touched by cancer, and we see how difficult it is sometimes to cope with the disease.

"Macmillan Cancer Care is doing an incredible job, and we are pleased to support their work."

Thanks to the generosity of staff, patients and visitors last year, BMI was able to hand over a cheque for almost PS12,000 to Macmillan Cancer Care.
