Scalling Walls Between the Well and the ill: Harmala Gupta at TEDxNITDurgapur

Dr. Harmala Gupta is a lady who traversed the journey from cancer to CANSupport. When in Canada she battled cancer of the lymphatic system, in a country where there's widespread awareness about cancer. When back in India she realised that a patient more than anything else needs support and with that very thought she set up Cancer Sahyog in 1991. The aim was to rope in survivors and their relatives to try and provide some hope to suffering patients. But then she realised that more was needed, thus was born CanSupport in 1996. The idea was to not just provide hope but support as well. She wanted to replicate the assistance that she received. Her team has been recognized internationally for the quality of the care, that too free of cost.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).
