Episode notes

When Soma Ghosh was diagnosed with cancer in August 2016, she was 41 years old and given just 6 months to live by one of India’s leading oncologists. Her family moved countries - from India to the United States in search of the best treatment in the world, consulted several doctors, and changed schools and jobs. Soma passed away in December last year, 6 and a half years later.

Sukanti Ghosh, her husband, joins us today to discuss this chapter of their lives - his role as a caregiver, the toll taken by cancer on their family, the critical importance of a supportive caregiving framework of employers, family and friends - and the fact that he believes there is a role for him to play in celebrating Soma’s cancer journey.
