The Patient Who Built a Hospital Poster
- A retired Swedish teacher who has not recovered after severe cancer surgery finds the last straw in India and a meeting that offers her a new life -

She was a Swedish patient that didn't get sufficient rehabilitation after a sever cancer operation. A friend adviced her to get ayurveda treatment. She questioned it: "What the heck is ayurveda?" The friend answered "Don't You worry just come to India and get it." The positive effects of this treatment assured her of a new way to get well and as a retired teacher and leadership educator she could see what the clinic needed in terms of administration and organization. So after some years they had established a relation and she was adopted in the family as the doctor's second mum. She also became highly respected in the village entitled Mum. She could implicate new values into the treatment teams. Caste, religion, gender should not affect the collaboration. All were equal. After some years the doctor hinted of his vision of a larger Clinic and this led her to help him develop a small clinic into a hospital.
