Sachin inaugurates cancer care centre

Hyderabad, Mar 6: Senior India batsman Sachin Tendulkar on Tuesday (March 5) inaugurated a foundation for research and treatment of cancers set up here by a group of doctors.

Speaking on the occasion, he appreciated the group of doctors led by D Nageshwar Reddy and Prateek Sharma, who started the Gastrointestinal and Liver Foundation for Research and Treatment of Cancers (GIFT).

"I think it's named appropriately, GIFT. I think the greatest gift which any human can get from doctors is a life, to live and enjoy. Breathe freely, enjoy your freedom. I don't think there is anything more valuable than that," he said.

Reddy runs the reputed city-based Asian Institute of Gastroenterology. Former cricketer VVS Laxman released a book on gastrointestinal cancer on the occasion.
