Born in Doha, and raised in the UK, Tamara Hasan is the perfect example of turning an idea into reality. After a friend fractured his arm and had nowhere to turn to in terms of physiotherapy, she saw a need and raced to fill it. In 2015, Tamara Hasan co-founded the International Physiotherapy Centre here in Doha, Qatar and she didn’t stop there. One year later, she found her and her team opening a second location. Fast forward to today, and she has now opened the International Medical Centre, a practice where you have your own family practitioner. Striving to give medical care a more personal feel, Tamara is hopeful that the newly opened International Medical Centre will provide just that.

So join Tamara and her team on their journey, as they strive to take healthcare and rehabilitation to the next level, here in Doha, Qatar.

In 2010 while visiting his parents here in Qatar, Canadian Sameer Ali realized something was terribly wrong. A short flight to his native India and a few tests after, the unexpected was confirmed - he had been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. After chemotherapy and a 6 month stay, he was free of cancer and back to Canada, only to learn his cancer had returned. Fast forward to 2016, and a few mountains later, Sameer is a true testament to how a positive attitude can overcome anything.


Follow him on his journey as he raises cancer awareness, one mountain at a time.

With so many people being affected by cancer in different ways these days, either through knowing someone close to them, a friend of a friend, or actually having cancer themselves, it’s not something you can ignore, and it won’t  go away if we stick our heads in the sand. Self testing and regular check-ups are important for all of us and Breast Cancer Awareness Month is great reminder about taking care of ourselves and the importance of supporting others.

Listen to our inspirational special guest Sandee Thompson, who took on breast cancer herself and walked away with a bilateral mastectomy. Sandee shows us that if you are diagnosed with the Big C, it’s not the end of the world, and can in fact be a new beginning. Sandee can be contacted directly at sandee_t@yahoo.com
