Hemachandra Venkatesh 54, of Indianapolis, passed away on August 15, 2014. He is survived by his loving wife, Hemalatha Hemachandra; daughter, Neha; son, Kailash & daughter-in-law Shruthi and daughter, Swathi & son-in-law Siddharth. Chandra, as he was widely known, had undertaken his oncology fellowship at the National Cancer Institute, in part in the laboratory of Dr Ian Magrath. He served as a member of INCTR USA for some years, and has for long been an INCTR member and provided financial support to its programs, particularly the Burkitt lymphoma project. After leaving the NCI, Chandra became an Oncologist/Hematologist at the Community Health Network, and was loved and respected by the community. He was the embodiment of selflessness, always putting his patients, his family, and his friends before his own needs. He was a very spiritual man, and inspired everyone around him to have strong faith in God. He was happiest when surrounded by those he loved the most, his wife and children.
