Maggie's Cancer Caring Centre
The Maggie's Cancer Caring Centre's professional team of oncology nurses, social workers and clinical psychologists focus on the practical, emotional and mental wellbeing of people living with cancer, as well as their families and friends.
Its approach is to unite support networks and professional help in one place, and to aid those affected by cancer. It provides free services and programmes, including informational sessions with oncology nurses, counselling sessions with clinical psychologists or social workers, support groups and an array of health and wellness workshops and programmes, from music therapy to beauty workshops.
The centre’s programming takes place within the grounds of Tuen Mun Hospital in a building designed pro bono by renowned architect Frank Gehry and surrounded by an exquisitely landscaped garden, providing its visitors with a relaxing, visually pleasing environment. Che-hung Leong is currently chairman.
