Raje Govt Signed MoU with Portugal Hospital Where Lalit Modi Went
Within 5 years, this hospital has received advanced stage cancer patients from over 80 countries, partly because of the alternative therapies they keep trying on patients. Is the cancer treatment in Portugal so phenomenal that Lalit Modi chose Lisbon over the best American hospitals?
End stage cancer patients don’t respond well to traditional treatment and are often not in a state to be subjected to chemotherapy and radiation. In such a scenario, well researched alternative therapies are needed to shrink the cancer and relieve symptoms.
Mrs Minalini Modi sought medical advice and care at our Institution following failure of multiple lines of treatment performed elsewhere. Since November 2012, the patient has received four procedures for potentially life-threatening conditions, which in all cases required a thorough assessment of the cost/benefit ratio.

Champalimaud Foundation to Open a Cancer Hospital in Rajasthan
On 2nd October 2014, the Lisbon based Champalimaud Foundation signed an agreement with the Government of Rajasthan to establish a state-of-the-art cancer institute with world-class facilities in the state.
The hospital will be spread over 35,000 square metres of land allotted by the state government and will offer affordable cancer care to patients.
It has now come to light that this was done in the presence of Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.
Interestingly, Minal Modi underwent surgery for breast cancer in August 2014 in Lisbon and two months later the same foundation signed an MoU with the Vasundhara Raje government.
