How a Doctor-Patient Bond Inspired the Pursuit of a Great Humanitarian Cause
Our very own Dr. Jose Bufill, a medical oncologist at Michiana Hematology Oncology, has collaborated with one of his previous patients to cofound an organization to improve oncology services in Rwanda.
Alice Cyusa, who was diagnosed with leukemia in 2017, completed her treatment under Dr. Bufill’s care and their doctor-patient bond inspired them to pursue a great humanitarian cause. They created the Komera Rwanda Cancer Foundation in Rwanda to support patients with cancer.
The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) recently interviewed Dr. Bufill and Alice in anticipation of their participation in the ASCO 2020 meeting to learn more about their foundation.
