"Instead of being satisfied to wait for conditions to be perfect it always better to take action for changing the condition to be perfect.
suresh_advani Certainly I will choose the above if I asked to describe Dr. Suresh Advani in just one line. You might be surprised to learn that his life get the starting with pains as he was born on 1August 1947 at Karachi and within no time family was forced to migrate to India because of partition of the country. Family of Suresh Advani settled at Ghatkopar Mumbai, but the nature keep its testing process on for the newly born baby, as Suresh at the age of 8 was attacked by Polio.
Physically challenged status didn't prove a hurdle for Suresh, he completed his schooling from a Sindhi medium school at Ghatkopar, Mumbai and become graduate from the Somaiya College. He decided to gain a professional degree from Grand Medical College but this was not a smooth process as at initial stage he was refused for admission just because of his physically challenged status. This was the determination of Suresh, which was boosted high during his talks with doctors, who were providing treatment for Polio attack on him, that finally he got admission for M.B.B.S. Actually these talks, do remember in those day there were very less facilities available in India for treatment of diseases like Polio, inspired Suresh decided to be a helping hand for the suffering humanity.
After completing M.D. in General Medicine he opted for Oncology a branch of medicine for which a few facilities were available in the country. He went on to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centre, Seattle, Washington, USA, where he got chance to work with 1990's Nobel Prize winner Dr. E Donnall Thomas, who is famous as the father of bone-marrow transplantation.
Dr Suresh Advani has fame of being pioneer in establishing Bone Marrow Transplantation set up in India. He is the first Oncologist of country who successfully transplanted bone marrow into a nine-year-old girl down with myeloid leukemia from her brother.
