Our Interview and Blog by Dr Upal, LUNGevity

In a boost for our ongoing work & fight for better access to latest medicines for Cancer patients especially Lung Cancer patients in India, we got an honor to meet & interviewed by Dr Upal, Director of Patient FoRCe at LUNGevity (world largest, successful & influential Lung Cancer non-profit organization, based in US). Dr Upal who became a friend, mentor & guide as soon as we met, who in his short trip to India, ensured a visit to our place to meet.

We are learning, determined & getting more confident with increasing support to see a day when no Cancer patient in India will die, due to non-access of a medicine that is available in any country of world.

Kudos to the organizers especially to Dr. Kumar Prabhash (Prof. Dept of Medical Oncology, Head Thoracic oncology, Tata Memorial Hospital). Such a humble, caring Doctor – think, talk and work only for patients
