Topic: Engineers4cancer

Mira Bhandari, age 10, a (very gifted) fifth grader at Frank V. Bergman Elementary School, Manhattan, KS has set up a website to help cancer patients:

http://engineers4cancer.org/

She is the daughter and only child of my dear friend, Prof. Alok Bhandari & his surviving spouse Nidhi. Alok passed away on Jan 30, 2013 after battling CC for 2 years.

When she grows up, Mira plans to be an engineer just like her papa, whom she loves and misses so much, was.

Warmly,

Sanjoy

I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend to this. How beautiful that his daughter has honored her daddy in this way. Willow

What a wonderful site and wonderful daughter!  So inspiring for someone so young to turn such a terrible event in her life into outreach to others.  Bravo!
