I joined The Max Foundation in 2012 as a Programme Coordinator after completing my professional education in Medical Social Work. These eight long years of association with The Max Foundation along with Friends of Max makes me a proud Patient Advocate for the CML and GIST community in India. Thanks to each patient, caregiver and physician I interacted with, who have made this job a constant learning experience for me. It has been an incredibly positive journey so far. I would love to be connected and actively contribute to all Friends of Max activities always.
