New Delhi: Florida-based radiation physicist Sudarshan Chamakuri is ready to sign a check for $750,000 to help build a cancer treatment center in Visakhapatnam, where he went to school, college and university. "Vizag is my place -- and it desperately needs a cancer center with cutting-edge technology," said Chamakuri, president of Nuclear Radiation Services, a US company, providing quality assurance services for oncology and nuclear medicine. He
has pitched the plan for the cancer center to the state government, hoping it will contribute at least through land.And he
is examining options to raise additional funds for the project."This is how I want to give back," Chamakuri
said on January 10 on the sidelines of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas conference.
