Please join us in singing happy birthday to Dr. Shanta of Adyar Cancer Institute who turned 90 on March 11, 2017. Dr. Shanta who joined the institute in 1955 has dedicated her life to the institute and to serving the cancer patients. In these 62 years the institute has grown from its modest beginnings to a premier institution. She has received many accolades for her tireless service.

On this occasion popular Tamil weekly magazine Ananda Vikatan interviewed her. She starts the interview saying “I am only 90 and there is so much to do!”. We also pray to the Almighty to give her strength to continue her service for many years to come.
