Dr. Hiral Tipirneni, an emergency room physician and cancer research advocate, has dedicated her life to serving her community and improving lives. She is running for Congress to take on Washington insiders and continue using her problem-solving, team-oriented approach to work with Republicans and Democrats alike to get the results the communities and neighborhoods of the West Valley need. At the age of three, Hiral came to America from India with her family in pursuit of the American dream. Hiral and her husband met while in medical school in Ohio. They have lived in the Phoenix area, where their three children were born and raised, for more than 20 years. She is on the board of directors for the Maricopa Health Foundation, which supports the county’s public health care delivery system. After losing both her mother and nephew to cancer, she left emergency medicine to concentrate on cutting-edge cancer research. Now she leads teams of researchers, clinicians, and patient advocates in the fight against breast cancer, prostate cancer and childhood leukemia. Hiral is living the American dream, and wants to help ensure others can live their own American dreams, too.
