I Nayana Doshi. I am a home-maker. I was living happily with my husband, son, daughter, son-in-law, grandson.Suddenly I realized, I had a lump in my breast. I was very nervous. How my family would be inside, I am a pillar of them. Myhusband told me not to be worried, there are many treatments for cancer. We first went to Dr. Mahendra Gandhi of Phaltan,he asked me to do a mammography sonography test and I did. He reviewed the report and said we had to have surgery. We said yes to the surgery, then he introduced us to Onco Life's doctor ManojLokhande sir.I told them about the surgery and they gave us the date for the surgery. On that date I had the surgery followed by Histopathological examination of the tumor.It was found to be a malignant tumor. Now the question is what to do next. Then Dr. ManojLokhande Sir called us to Onco Life.After reviewing my reports, he suggested for chemotherapy. My financial situation was fragile.The doctor said that chemotherapy and radiation therapy would be included in the Government. scheme and then I got some support.Onco Life's staff is very kind; we feel here like we are with family members. All the doctors and nurses here care about each patient, so I have always been assured about my treatment.If someone has a problem, they try their best to solve it. All the facilities are good here, the accommodation is also very good.When my treatment was about to be completed,I came to know that my daughter is also having some similar symptoms.Then I immediately suggested her to take treatment at Onco Life. It has all the facilities, no need to go anywhere.She also has completed her treatment and is now fully recovered.I am very thankful to the doctors and all the staff here.
The social work that Onco Life has started is really commendable.The reason for writing like this is because my brother Shri.Abhijit Suresh Durve. He was suffering from Cancer, problem started in the year 2018-19. We then admitted him to Yashwant Hospital, Doctor asked for surgery brain tumor. Even after nearly 13 hours of surgery, he lost his sight in 2019 and then stopped walking. He became very serious then we admitted him to Ajinkyatara Hospital. There, Dr. Tapase suggested us to go to Onco Life. When we brought him to the OncoLife, Dr. Siddhesh Sir reassured us. He gave him a very nice treatment. The specialty of this hospital is that it gives us a mixture of love and affection in the treatment. The hospital staff Doctors, Nurses, Care Takers and Radiation team cooperated a lot. We thankful to them for all this, Today, on July 14, I took him to the hospital again but on his own foot. It was very heartwarming to see this moment, I remembered the day I brought him for the first time and I am very happy to see him walking today. Special thanks to Dr. SiddheshTryambakeSir for this, He gave us a very nice treatment.
Mr. Shivaji Krishna Bhosale - Before visiting Onco-Life Cancer Centre, I had already undergone surgery in a hospital based at Kolhapur. After receiving my test results post surgery, we met Dr Ravi Wategaonkar at Onco-Life. Doctor asked us to get some tests done and follow up with him next week. But within 2 days, I started feeling discomfort & was advised by the hospital to get a hepatitis test done. The count was 15.6 & had to I had to quickly undergo treatment for hepatitis since I couldn't take treatment on cancer before treating myself for hepatitis. For a first few days (8-10 days) I couldn't see much difference but after that, I started recovering very well. After completely recovering from hepatitis, I started taking chemotherapy for lymphoma disease. Approximately 12 cycles. Post treatment, I underwent the Body scan which showed that I do not have cancer anymore. I am absolutely grateful to Dr. Andure who has been like an angel to us. I would also like to thank Dr. Ravi Wategaonkar, Dr. Siddhesh Tryambake & Dr. Vikrant Mahajani for their co-operation & help
My father was diagnosed with Bone cancer which led to our family members getting worried & stressed. After some research, we got to know about this hospital & decided to meet Dr. Ravi Wategaonkar for the same. Since we are not from a well to do background, costs of cancer treatment was worrisome. Since the hospital has MJPJAY Scheme facility, it was a boon for us. We didn't have to pay any money & all the treatment was covered under the scheme. The quality of care & attentional here is phenomenal. In all my lifetime, I have never seen any hospital treating patients & us this nicely. Now my father is feeling much better. The hospital has focussed highly on its cleanliness standards. The staff is very co-operative. Seeing this hospital has truly motivated me to pursue for further education in Nursing & eventually become a male nurse & serve patients & humanity. I have now got the courage to turn my dreams into reality. Thank you onco-life for everything.
Shivaji Kashinath Pawar
When I arrived at this hospital for the first time, I wondered how could poor people like us afford treatment at this hospital? When i was brought to the hospital for the first time,I couldn't walk at all. I used a wheelchair. After taking the suggested treatment by Oncologists here, I am now able to walk properly like a normal person & feeling much better than before.Our all treatment has been paid by MJPJAY scheme with the hospital's help only & i am very grateful to this hospital for everything they have done for me.
My name is Shivaji Kashinath Pawar from Hingangade,Tal khanapur, Dist Sangli. I used to come from my village to Onco life cancer centre, satara after every 8 days to take chemotherapy. Everyone has their own dreams & desire to live their life to the fullest & with fulfillment.This hospital has given me new hope which I had lost a while back. My family is happy too to not only see me walk again but also become cancer free.
I am a resident of Mumbai because of my job. I had one small tumor in my mouth & went to Manavta Curie Hospital (Borivali). After surgery, there were no diagnosis for the same. A few months later there was a recurrence & I met the doctor again but plainly refused to treat me any further. I went to KEM hospital, Mumbai but they asked to me get treated in TATA Memorial Hospital. I got admitted in TATA for 12 days but they hadn't started any treatment. Out of utter frustration, I asked for a discharge. After some days, I got a call from TATA Memorial Hospital asking me to get admitted again for surgery. Same thing happened again. After over a week of admission & no surgery, I took voluntary discharge and came to my village satara. I was asked to visit Onco-Life Cancer Centre. I met Dr. Digvijay Patil who explained to me properly & counselled me as well. He was a pure gentleman. He could sense my frustration & helped me get through it. He scheduled my surgery the very next day. That was a great relief for me. The doctor & staff supported me during my toughest time. I owe them everything. They are doing a great job for all the patients. May god bless them.
Mrs. Shaila Tirmare
I am a resident of Satara city itself. I had a tumor in my breast & a surgeon from satara city itself removed it & gave it for biopsy. It was then known to us that I was suffering from Breast Cancer. I was distressed to a great extent upon knowing this news & started falling into depression. Upon coming to Onco-Life we met Dr. Digvijay Patil who is an Onco surgeon. Him & his team explained to us everything in detail. It was such a liberating experience that i felt i am half way to cure already. Doctors, Nurses & staff here are really nice & everybody takes a lot of care of patients. They also provide mental & emotional support to patients like us.I spoke with other fellow patients as well in the hospital & htey too shared the same feeling. Hospital is very neat & tidy. I am totally cured & cancer free now. No one has to fear this disease & fight bravely. Fear is only going to bring you negative results. Having a positive outlook towards life is so important i have learnt after this experience. We have a lot of examples like yuvraj Singh, Sonali Bendre, etc who are an inspiration to us.
I completed my Chemotherapy treatment somewhere in early 2018. When i was diagnosed with cancer, i was very fearful & anxious of coming to the hospital. Coming to a cancer hospital can be very scary but at Onco-Life Cancer Centre, the staff & doctors were so warm & kind. They counselled me so well. The counselors were constantly talking to me & trying to help me remove my mental fear. Being from a poor background, i thought i would not be able to afford the treatment looking at all the posh facilities they had. But i got treated under MJPJAY scheme free of cost. Now i am cured of cancer & asked to do my routine follow-ups. One of my friend named Tanaji Kade too underwent treatment here & is cured too. We are all so thankful & grateful to Onco-Life Cancer Centre for giving us a new beginning to life.Very thankful to Mr. Uday Deshmukh as well for building such a beautiful hospital because of which patients like me can be treated here without any hassle.
Right now i am totally cancer free. I got all the help from Onco-Life Cancer Centre. The staff took great care of me throughout. Felt like an extended family. I have seen them not discriminating with any patient & i am doing my routine follow-ups. It feels great to survive this deadly disease & lead a normal healthy life.
I am a Breast Cancer Survivor. When i had my first baby boy, There was a tumor detected in my Breast. I was asked to get a surgery done.Post Surgery we came to know that it was just a fibroid. It was a relief but didn't last really long. After 3 months, i again had a recurrence. After tests, there was a tumor detected again & our surgeon from other hospital insisted me on getting the Breast removed to which we agreed. In 2015 the Surgery took place & my Breast was removed. Shortly after, again i had a recurrence & that is when i started losing hope & started becoming more anxious. I then opted for natural therapy of Ayurveda & homeopathy. It didn't help. In-fact after some months it had grown to a great extent. My doctor then recommended me to get Radiation Therapy started with immediately. I was asked to visit Onco-Life Cancer Centre. I had gone there with minimal hope due to constant recurrence. The Radiation Oncologist there & Chairman Mr. Uday Deshmukh explained to us the diagnosis & treatment in detail. Mr. Uday Deshmukh also helped us with financial aspect as we were short of funds. It was a great help. Never seen anyone do that. The People in hospital were very sweet & co-operative. Being a new hospital back then, yet the management was smooth with its operations. Its been over 4 years now i have had no recurrence & doing my follow-ups as per their guidance. I am very thankful to Onco-Life & everyone associated with it from the bottom of my heart.
I have undergone cancer surgery in 'Onco Life Cancer Centre' on 13.7.17. This hospital is well-equipped with all the advanced facilities & hospital staff is very obedient. Everybody is highly cooperative and because of that my health has been improved so well. This disease can be surely cured if diagnosed in the early stages and by taking proper treatment for the same. We can definitely improve our health if we wish for the same.
Honorable Mr. Uday Deshmukh has started this beautiful hospital in Satara to provide cancer treatment to ordinary people. I am very much thankful to Mr. Uday Deshmukh and the entire staff of 'Onco'. Hopefully, everybody will continue this type of humble service to patients & may God give good health to everybody.
I was suffering from 2nd stage stomach cancer. I just want to keep it short & brief. Everyone in the hospital treated me like a family & made me feel like i am one of them. I have finished my treatment & totally recovered & all the credit goes to the hospital. They have helped thousands of patients like me recover from this deadly disease
Getting to know that you are diagnosed with third stage Breast cancer can be really traumatizing. Your mind tends to attract all sorts of negative thoughts in its head & you feel helpless & powerless at that point. Recovering from such a mental trauma is very difficult. I had second thoughts about getting treatment done since i thought there was no point & try Ayurveda. The doctors at Onco-Life spoke with me & family & convinced us otherwise. Inspite of financial constraints we agreed since they assured us that all expenses will be covered under MJPJAY scheme. My entire treatment was almost free of cost. The treatment & care provided was really good.Other hospitals in pune where i had been in the past for other ailments, they have charged huge sum & yet never provided such quality treatment & care.
Pranav JadhavDisease Name: Hodgkin Lymphoma
Quote by his mother "We were in great distress after learning that our 10-year-old kid has been detected with cancer. Coming to Onco-Life Cancer Centre has been the best decision of my life. We absolutely had no hope earlier, since for us cancer means death. The doctors & staff were so caring & understanding. They explained to us everything in detail & assured us that Pranav would be perfectly fine & healthy post-treatment. Its been a little over a year now since he completed his treatment & now follows his regular routine of school, studies, playing, swimming, etc. We got our old playful Pranav back & for anyone around it is hard to believe that he ever had cancer. For us, Onco-Life Cancer Centre is the best thing that could ever happen.

I started my treatment in August 2016 at Onco-Life Cancer Centre. Everyone in the hospital is always smiling & its a delight to watch them so positive & full of enthusiasm. The doctors do always inquire of our health which feels good. The doctors gave us all the information which was needed which removed fear from our mind about cancer.
Observing the staff's work, they are pretty disciplined & professional. The surrounding of the hospital was a key factor in recovery. its surrounded by greenery all around, yet so close to the national highway. they have found a perfect location. Just want to end it by thanking Mr. Uday Deshmukh who has been a blessing in disguise to us in the form of this hospital. He has given me & 1000's of other patients a new meaning to life.

Sunil BhosaleDisease Name : CA (abdomen)- Stage 2
I was diagnosed with abdomen cancer 3 months after my wife was diagnosed with Breast cancer on her left breast. Me & my wife decided to take treatment from Onco-Life Cancer Centre itself. She was already undergoing treatment there. We weren't fearful of the disease & decided to fight it. We both used to counsel each other & made each other strong. Cancer is a dangerous disease & without proper treatment, care & follow up people cannot get cured of it. Thankfully we got all of them right at Onco-Life & we successfully won over this deadly disease. The staff was very co-operative & sweet. I would just like to add that people should stop fearing to get themselves checked up since its better to get diagnosed at the earliest. Onco-Life Cancer Centre has given me & my wife a new life & we will never forget what they have done for us.

Meenakashi NayakDisease Name: Breast Cancer Stage 3
I was diagnosed with third stage Breast Cancer in March 2016. I underwent surgery post which i had to take 6 chemo cycles & 25 radiation cycles. During August 2018 i underwent PET/CT Scan & it was observed that i am totally cancer free.
Dr. Manoj Lokhande, My husband Laxman & my son Rohit Nayak were the main pillars who helped me to bravely fight against Cancer. Earlier, being 3rd stage i had a notion that i wouldn't ever get well or survive this. Doctor Manoj Lokhande also provided me with moral support & counseling which helped me to get out of this horrible situation sooner.
The hospital staff took great care of me & ensured that i was comfortable throughout my stay here. The surrounding of the hospital is so scenic that it seldom felt like i was in a hospital. Importantly, I am now working with Onco-Life Cancer Centre as an employee (Patient Counselor) & constantly share my experience with the patients, trying to build their confidence & faith which helped me during my journey.
