International Patient Experience

Mr Mekonen, from Ethiopia
colon cancer treatment

My name is Mr Mekonen, from Ethiopia. I had the symptoms of colon cancer. My doctor advised me to consult Forerunners Healthcare consultants in India. I contacted them and sent my medical reports. Soon after they reverted with a positive reply that the surgery can be performed in Mumbai, India. My surgeon was US-trained and an expert. My cancer is now gone and I feel rejuvenated. I thank Forerunners Healthcare Consultants for their help.
