In Memory of Dr. Ramamoorthy Sundaresan


In 2007, Dr. Ramamoorthy Sundaresan saved my life.  I had already reconciled the fact that I would not see Christmas of that year; and I made my peace.  But he had other ideas.  He went above and beyond his oath as a doctor.  While treating me, he taught me about humanity and having faith in people.  Through the years we became close friends.  Then, unexpectedly, he was gone; and the world became a much poorer place without him.  Not a day goes by without me thinking about him.  My campaign is dedicated to our friendship and to his memory.
