Thoughts from Venu’s Medical Care Givers


Extracts from a Sympathy Card Sent to Venu’s Family

            As a cyclist and swimmer, I always enjoyed talking with Venu about these things. I will miss him. -- Dr. Larry Kaplan, Head of Oncology of UCSF.

            I became so fond of Venu and will always remember his spirit, courage and positivity. We talked a lot about his swimming and biking events and he’ll be in my  thoughts as I train for a ½ marathon. Even as he was in great pain, he would ask me about my training. What a kind and caring soul! -- Julie Paster, Social Worker, UCSF Hospital.

            I was amazed each time I spoke with Venu by his strength, kindness and discipline. His dedication to his swimming and running were unwavering. We will miss him greatly – Nursing Staff, UCSF Hospital (signature unreadable).

            My deepest sympathy to you (family members) Venu was so full of life. I will miss seeing him in the clinic. – RN, UCSF Hospital (signature unreadable)
