Parul was diagnosed with fallopian tube cancer in 2011 at age 54. She beat back cancer to remission in 2016 until it returned later that year. In her usual way she fought with strength, love, and grace. It was her wish to contribute to scientific research that would one day lead to a cure. She donated plasma and tumor samples so that research facilities around the world could work to end this rare cancer. In lieu of flowers you can contribute to this fundraiser for the American Cancer Society so that future generations don’t have to deal with this scourge and patients facing a cancer diagnosis can receive much needed support.
