Ms Val Hunkin

Our friend and benefactor, Mr Bruce Davis writes to give us some sad news. Ms Val Hunkin, a great friend of Indian palliative care and one who has taught communication skills to many many of us, died of advanced cancer today.

Val was taken ill a year and half back while on a cruise, she was taken to a hospital in the USA and given the diagnosis of cancer. She has had a tough fight with the disease, supported by her dear friend Jeni and many others.

Goodbye, Val. You were a great friend. You touched a lot of lives in India. Thank you.
