Register Now for TeamWalk for CancerCare
Sunday, May 21, 2023
Last year after 2 years of a virtual event, our walkers and donors for Lowell General Hospital’s TeamWalk for CancerCare came through once again, officially raising $685,382 to help cancer patients across the Merrimack Valley.
This year we are looking forward to another fantastic year and are happy to announce our new TeamWalk Honorary Co-Chairs, Drs. Atul & Ajita Bhatt of Andover.
Dr. Atul Bhat is an interventional spine physiatrist affiliated with Spire-OSA Orthopedics and Tufts Medicine Lowell General Hospital. Ajita, his wife, is an active community volunteer who currently serves as a Lowell General corporator and is a former volunteer at the hospital’s Mass Vaccination Program.
As honorary co-chairs, the Bhats will serve as lead TeamWalk ambassadors and work closely with the organizers to make this year’s event the best yet. They take over for Carrie Meikle of Chelmsford, a cancer survivor who has passionately served in the role for the past three years.
Last year, the Bhats, along with daughters Amolina and Anushka, made a generous donation to the Cancer Center to add a new examination room at Lowell General’s Women’s Wellness Center, expanding access to specialty-trained physicians who monitor and treat individuals with a high risk of breast cancer.
“After undergoing a successful surgery at Lowell General, we feel blessed to be treated at a local facility with excellent interdisciplinary care,” Ajita Bhat said. “We are hopeful that patients in the entire community are equally fortunate to receive this level support from the hospital and its caregivers, and we are thankful that the fundraising from the TeamWalk will serve that very same cause.”
