Photo of Nikhil and Family

Nikhil Guhagarkar found opportunities to balance life as a father, husband, medical professional, patient advocate and cancer survivor. When he travelled around the world, he found beauty in whatever he saw and shared it with others. I loved meeting with him and hearing how proud he was of his son being a chess champion.

He brought such light to every meeting we had. He had such a sweet smile and you couldn’t help but like him! It was inspiring to watch him grow over the years with his confidence as a patient advocate. He assisted so many GIST patients and families in India but he also shared his knowledge and experience with topics such as nutrition and dental health with the global GIST community through virtual presentations with the Life Raft Group and other patient advocacy groups.
