Research Matters


This morning when I woke up and checked my Twitter, I found that in an ongoing conference in Seattle, USA on “US National & Global Cancer Health Disparities”, Kusum Malik Tomar & our story and message for Better & Timely Access to Clinical Research & Latest Treatment for India Cancer patients was presented.

I am overwhelmed & proud to hear about the positive impact it is making at global level and inspiring lead Researchers, Doctors & stakeholders to bring latest cancer treatment to India🤞

I was not aware that my this message was being presented in this conference but glad it was. I have written this message in Feb post Kusum’s demise, to thank those who contributed to research medicines which helped Kusum to survive that long & to request them to continue their efforts. Since then this message is getting viral among different conferences & clinical research sector while gladly making some positive impact.

In loving memory of my love, my life, my wife kusum💕, I dedicate my this attached message to all, who is working & contributing directly & indirectly for Cancer Research & Clinical Trials be it Industry, Researchers, Doctors, Health Authorities, amazing Patient support groups & fellow brave & passionate Patient Advocates🙏…Keep doing your best, to help more & more like Kusum to survive longer quality life even at Stage 4 cancer!!




Stagnancy in Life: Horror symptoms of Cancer Progression

This blog was written by Kusum before her death and I found this today in draft section of our blogsite. Kusum missed to publish it, I think because of her deteriorated health condition…..As soon as I found this draft blog, I have to share/ publish it for her, in honor and love.

“This word “Stagnant” is itself a termite of life. Oh GOD !!! My whole family is on toes due to my symptoms of progression in Lungs, Bones and many other parts of body. The symptoms increases as night progress like continuously cough, pain in ribs, back & legs and vomiting, with shuffling time not at same time.

I am that person who constantly wants to challenge herself, evolve and grow. ‘Agitation‘ is opposite of ‘Stagnation‘. The one is ‘Life’, the other is ‘Death‘.

As fighting with my symptoms, sometimes I feel that they become fixed after putting so many efforts, medicines however sometimes no improvement. As my cough persists my all family members wake up almost whole night and bring their best so that I can get some relief…..But I can not see them in that situation, therefore I have started to tell them that now I am better and want to sleep so you all also please go to sleep……It is Vivek who still either not sleep or wake-up on my slight movement.

Hoping to get fully rid out of these and to break the Stagnancy in my life…after that new challenges are waiting for me with new treatment side-effects.

When we are no longer able to change a situation; we are challenged to change ourselves!!

Love and Hope for all,



Kusum, Cancer and our Love Story!!

“Kusum” – In Hindi, it means flowers. A flower is a creature of the universe which has the potential to create a beautiful world, influence people with its presence and even leave people with its sweet memories as it is done with life. That’s exactly how she is “Kusum Vivek Tomar”.
