Aastha - Breast Cancer Self Help Group, Pune

This support group “Aastha” has performed wonders to restore the self-image and sense of identity amongst the cancer patients. This group is based in Pune. We meet as and when needed, there is complete freedom and informal interactions. You may call “Aastha” an open forum.

Dr. Bawdekar
“I was toying with such an idea for quite some days. I am very happy to see such a group functioning in Pune. I call such a group, 'comradeship in Distress'. “Aastha” is my dream that has come true”.

Dr. Badawe
“Support Group is not an experimental concept. Such support groups exist the world over and it has been scientifically proved that support groups help to enhance not only the quality of life but also increase life expectancy

“Aastha” has been functioning successfully in Pune for the past several years. Monthly “sharing meetings” are conducted, Occasionally experts are invited to deliver talks, and there are interactive sessions to clear doubts, talk shows, workshops or simply just entertainment programmes. The cancer patients and the team of volunteers chalk out the programmes. And the bond of fraternity becomes stronger.

Dr. Anand Nadkarni
“We normally visualize a cancer patient as a miserable, bedridden and a depressed individual. But here I find them not only very happy, but through a powerful medium of theatre, they are expressing themselves and bringing about social awareness. This is amazing! It is not only innovative but also revolutionary.
