Once the approach toward the disease changes, it becomes easy to listen to one's body and perceive even the smallest changes. The patient's loss of hope changes into thirst for quality life and positive attitudinal changes are perceptible. They keenly observe whether there are any symptoms which may indicate a recurrence if any, and help each other to seek timely checkup for the same.

Dr. Avachat
“Aastha” is the brainchild of Dr. Anil avachat. Many different support groups exist for heart patients and therefore for heart disease, stress management has definite solutions. To combat recurrence the group advises the patients to follow a conscious and cautious style of life and try to define a post cancer lifestyle.
