Words fail to describe how important health is, and how important medical care is, and how important doctors are, and I think not just in my life, not just for cancer patients, but overall the world has realised the importance of quality medical treatments in the last few years. I am so grateful for the caregivers, doctors and treatment I received at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York and I'm so happy that it's come here to Chennai. I know their work has helped so many around the world in diagnosing, treating and curing cancer and I am sure the Chennai branch will help thousands, if not millions of people, and their research collaborations can and will truly make a difference. I was honored to inaugurate the branch of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center here in Chennai, it’s always a pleasure to be a part of such a brilliant cause…
