Namrata Singh Gujral (born February 26, 1976) is an American actress of Indian and Tibetan descent. A Sikh by faith, she was born in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh and graduated in 1998 from the University of West Florida.[1]

According to India West, in 2013 Gujral got treated for Burkitt's Lymphoma, the most aggressive cancer known to man and a form of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. She was treated with aggressive chemotherapy including intrathecal chemotherapy at City of Hope for six months. The cause of lymphoma was prior chemotherapy from 2008 for breast cancer.

She is currently in remission from both cancers and launching The Thrive Channel in 2014. Ref: http://www.indiawest.com/news/12691-Actress-Fights-Lymphoma--Urges-Community-Awareness.html.
